First time Eco-Friendly Garden Tour host Linda introduces her garden:
An eight year work in progress on a knoll of bedrock! Most of my life I’ve enjoyed gardening, especially harvesting food for last minute meals. Every year I’ve brought in at least 8 yards of soil and manure (from an older local couple with a horse)! The numerous droughts awakened my sensibility to attempt a landscape of vignettes using low water plants in my front yard. The goal was to contrast texture and color in this rocky terrain. Thru trial & error, including many contributed cuttings; nature has rewarded me with a big impact landscape that is low-water and fairly robust except when there’s a deep frost or the deer decide to taste everything again!
