Sacred Space Gardens

“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now”

A blend of Wild and Tame

Our client, Lisa, presented us with a wildflower space that had gone to the weeds. She had various places in her yard that needed attention. We cleaned up the wildflower area and re-did her garden along the fence line, planted a redbud tree and a crabapple tree, plus created a raised bed area for her herbs and veggies. She had wood from her old house that she requested we use for the raised beds. Then we filled them with organic potting mix from Gertens. Challenges of this project included digging out a walkway and leveling it to lay the stones. Plus finding a place on her property to put the extra soil/grass from where we dug out the borders of the gardens and the pathways.

  • We created a walking path with limestone steppers so she could better enjoy the beautiful plants she had planted (before we worked on her garden).
  • We had so much fun working on this project because she wanted to encourage pollinators, native plants and wildlife. Which aligns with our values as well.
  • She chose to have us dig down an edging in the grass vs. stone or plastic edging. So the mulch just meets the grass. She decided that another year she might want stone edging.
