Sometimes rather that completely reconstructing a landscape we can build raised planting beds or employ container gardening. For the raised garden beds they can be built almost anywhere and to any height or shape. We use wood ties, rocks, basalt wall stones, and other materials. After the frame is built top quality compost garden mix is added with amendments and planting can commence.
Container gardens are a beautiful way to create a garden area where you normally could not. Places such as apartment buildings, staircases, sidewalks or on patio surfaces. There are many kinds of pots you can use all varying in size, shape, texture, colour, and weight. A mixture of containers seems to work best so you can break up patterns and include some large trees as well and smaller perennials and annuals if desired.
