Today’s GPOD comes from Lin Sime:
"My husband and I live less than 10 minutes from downtown Eugene, OR (we are in Zone 8). We used mulch on top of cardboard to get rid of most of the front lawn and all of the back. Most of what I chose to replace it with are shrubs. I call it “my shrub forest,” both in the front and back. Fall has always been my favorite season, so I chose numerous shrubs for their changing foliage plus some small evergreens. Now that most or all of my shrubs are in the ground, I concentrate on a few annuals and perennials to add, especially in back."
Have a garden you'd like to share? Email 5-10 high-resolution photos (there is no need to reduce photo sizing before sending—simply point, shoot and send the photos our way) and a brief story about your garden to GPOD@taunton.com. Please include where you're located!
Sending photos in separate emails to the GPOD email box is just fine.
