A Smaller Garden

I am helping a friend design her tiny backyard.


At first I planted herbs, spacing them to allow for their mature size.

 

Lavender                                 Thyme                                   Rosemary


 

Oregano                                     Fennel                                  Sage

Then she decided large pots would give her more flexibility.


She used an organic treatment to cut down on weeds and put in a mulched and stone walk.



Marigolds help to distract bugs from her herb, vegetable and fruit transplants and provide a colorful border.


What a beautiful transformation!
