My goal is to help you along your path of getting out of the rut of having a garden that is merely adequate and convert it slowly into a place you desire to hang out in. I will provide you with inspiration and that gentle push to get started making progress and stop procrastinating.

And along the way you will learn some practical techniques that you can use to improve your garden one step at a time.
