READER PHOTOS! Jay's garden in North Carolina, Day 2comments (15) July 6th, 2012 in blogs
Continuing on from yesterday, today we're touring a couple of other areas in Jay Sifford's garden in Charlotte, North Carolina. Jay says, "For the front garden, I removed all of the turf two years ago. It wasn't doing well anyway, so I chose to use my creativity to do something "outside the box". I terraced the gravel pathway with a series of railroad ties, since they spoke to the rustic nature of the house. I brought the beds in closer. Since my beds are rather naturalistic, I chose to make the gravel pathway fairly wide to create a sense of order and space. The beds are filled with perennials. The only annual I use here is coleus. I root a hundred or so cuttings of different cultivars in my greenhouse under the orchid benches every winter." Jay, these areas of the garden look so different from yesterday's woodland garden. It's all just great. Thanks so much for sharing your garden with us. **On Monday, we'll get a glimpse of what Jay creates for his clients--very interesting!
