My name is Chris and this is my gardening blog. I live in the city, technically “near-suburbs” I guess, and my lot isn’t the biggest thing in the world, but I make the most of it. Since buying this house I’ve put in over 500 linear feet of brick retaining wall, a new fence, and hundreds of plants. I’ve probably spent nearly $10k and hundreds of hours of labor over the past two years on my landscape. I mostly grow flowers and perennials, but I’ve also planted some trees and foliage plants.
The goal of this blog is for me to share my passion with the world, and also to provide tips I’ve learned through my own experiences and through watching countless episodes of shows like Gardening by the Yard. (hi Paul).
Its almost Christmas right now, and so there isn’t alot of gardening to be done, so don’t expect a lot of activity here until spring comes, at which time I hope to post atleast once a week. I plan to cover both gardening and landscape design.
Oh, and I garden in Zone 5 (lower Michigan).
