What Gardening System Should You Follow?

What Gardening System Should You Follow?

If you have done any reading on gardening, you may have noticed some authors present a series of steps laid out in detail on the author’s preferred way of gardening. These are what I call “gardening systems”.[...]

Why Every Homeowner Should Be Growing Ornamental Grass

Why Every Homeowner Should Be Growing Ornamental Grass

Yeah, most homes in the northern U.S. have well-trimmed and tidy Kentucky bluegrass lawns, but Kentucky bluegrass does nothing for a self-sustaining landscape although it does have its place when used wisely and sparingly. But grass can and should have a fundamental part in a sustainable landscape – perennial clump grass that is![...]

Firecracker Penstemon: A Striking Addition to Any Western Landscape

A drive up into the Wasatch mountains in April to July is almost guaranteed to provide a colorful floral experience to any vehicle passenger or hiker. But the best bang of them all comes from the firecracker penstemon![...]

Talkin' Fruit Trees: Is Planting a Sucker a Good Idea?

Talkin' Fruit Trees: Is Planting a Sucker a Good Idea?

A few months ago I talked about planting seeds for fruit trees. Today on social media I saw a recommendation for something you hear about much less frequently.

That is, if you are not too interested in fruit.[...]

To Resume or Not to Resume, That is the Question

A few months ago I read an article in a major business magazine. The article insisted that you shouldn’t place a resume. The argument was that it is much better to talk to the decision maker in person than to risk your chances for a job on a mere piece of paper. [...]

Tradition, Gifts, and Sustainability

Tradition, Gifts, and Sustainability

I received a great Christmas gift from my sister this past holiday season. It was a bag of walnut shells from walnuts that we gathered from the tree in front of my house last year. Now this might seem a bit odd to folks that did not grow up in the depression or in the years during and after WWII, but those whose families are still connected with the past might realize the value of such a gift for Christmas.[...]

A Holiday Season Debate: Pumpkin Pie or Squash Pie?

This season the accusations again reared their ugly heads. Canned pumpkin, it was said, is not really pumpkin. When I heard this scandalous accusation again this past holiday season my blood boiled. It took me back to my high school days when I heard this claim for the first time. Of course, back then I just shrugged and went about my business. [...]

Product Review: HedgeScapes Artificial Topiary

I know what you’re probably thinking. What in the world is Nature’s Seed talking about? Artificial topiary? After all, we’re a company that only deals with living seeds that will eventually grow into living plants; the key word here being living.

Beautification vs. Problem Solving as an Approach to Landscape Design

Beautification vs. Problem Solving as an Approach to Landscape Design

Design is not about beautification so much as it is about problem solving. While I expect the word “design” to be used when referring to beatification for decades to come, real design has more to do with making things better than making them look good. [...]
