Like Glamour Magazine’s Fashion DOs and DON’Ts, Gardens are DOs and DON’Ts too.
Gardens I pass in my travels:
DO: Glorious red/orange Maple and well designed fence.
DO: Grand grasses glowing and blowing in the wind.
DO: Grasses and native plants are drought resistant and save water!
House eating juniper or juniper eating house.
Fence eating juniper or juniper eating fence.
Just don’t juniper!
DOs and DON’Ts:
DON’T let the trunk or a stem climb behind a drain pipe. It will grow larger and there goes your drain pipe!
DO: Try a trellis.
DO or DON’T?
ESPALIER TREATMENT OF TREE
Love the espalier, but it’s growing over a window. DO or DON’T?
“Let the sunshine in. Let the sunshine in. Let the sun shine in!” (From the musical, Hair.)
Guess what I think?
