Today’s photos are from Hunter Ten Broeck in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He says, “I am a garden designer and the owner of Waterwise Landscapes Inc. in Albuquerque. This is one of my designs. It is a garden in the Ridgecrest area of Albuquerque.
“It is a terraced (we used boulders to terrace) and walled backyard. We worked to create a series of outdoor living spaces. There is also a shade structure for summer. The yard includes a grape arbor, an herb garden, and a small mini-meadow, as well as a partially hidden utility area with a clothes line. We recycled some of the old brick in a more curved path as well as using some bricks as edging for the crusher fines path.
“We ended up relandscaping the front yard two years later and the owners sold the house in 2005, but we have maintained the property for the new owners ever since. These photos were taken in 2009.
The silver foliage is threadleaf sage (Artemesia filifolia). Other plants include desert willow (Chilopsis linearis), creeping germander (Teucrium chamaedrys ‘Prostrata’), Jupiter’s beard (Centranthus ruber), ‘Moonshine’ yarrow (Achillea ‘Moonshine’), and ‘Karl Foerster’ feather reed grass (Calamagrostis arundinacea ‘Karl Foerster’).”
Hey look–that makes 44 states!! OK, if you live in Alaska, Hawaii, Arizona, South Dakota, Arkansas, or Mississippi, we’re counting on you to pull us through to all 50 states. And how about Puerto Rico?? I know you’re out there somewhere…. And while we’re at it, how in the world is it possible that we’ve never featured a garden from England? That just seems wrong, doesn’t it?
