THE DEFINITIVE GUIDE TO WINDOW BOX DESIGN

Designing containers is one of my favorite parts of gardening. There are so many options and there’s so much less commitment than designing a garden: You get to redo it every year. Pretty much everyone knows about the thriller, spiller, filler method of designing containers and although this isn’t the only way, it’s a pretty […]

HOLIDAY CHEER FOR OUTSIDE

My favorite holiday decorations are the ones I do outside. It’s partly because they brighten up what is otherwise a pretty dreary landscape, but also because the decorations outside, particularly the containers, provide the most decorating bang for the buck.I love how with a few collected (and some purchased) materials you can create something that […]

Spreading the cheer outside

Holiday decorating is a slow process at my house. I’m so amazed by all the holiday home tours on the Internet … I haven’t even really thought much about the inside. I love doing my outdoor containers though. I leave them decorated (sans lights) almost all winter because I love looking at them. I take […]
