In many parts of the country, water resources are becoming scarcer. That's why it's a good idea to landscape your home using waterwise techniques. Called xeriscaping, this process will help you have a less thirsty backyard. The term "xeriscaping" was first coined by the Denver Water Board and has been used to describe landscaping methods that will reduce irrigation needs and maximize the use of natural precipitation. In this front yard, drought-resistant plants are staged around boulders that he
Xeriscaping is just a fancy word for landscaping in a way that requires very little water - it saves money, saves water and looks amazing!

Agnes Katz Plaza, Pittsburgh #plazas
"The legacy of Dan Kiley is that his work demonstrates how place in informs life and how in turn life gives meaning and value to place. That he has done with art, grace and good humor to the lasting benefit of all." - Peter Ker Walker, 2013 | via @The Cultural Landscape Foundation | #Landslide2013
Agnes Katz Plaza, Pittsburgh, PA | This half-acre public plaza, which officially opened in 1999 in Pittsburgh’s downtown Cultural District, was a collaborative design effort between architect Michael Graves, Dan Kiley, and artist Louise Bourgeois. The central fountain, sculpted by Bourgeois was the artist’s largest public art commission in the U.S. at the time. https://tclf.org/landscapes/agnes-r-katz-plaza

Greenroofs101: Plant Material Due to possible damage to the waterproofing integrity, normal stake posts cannot be used to anchor the trees. Thin, high-tension wires attached to the tree, see photo above left, is one possibility. However, the best solution is to use a "spider" of steel wire, enveloping the root ball and anchored to a steel grafting beneath, see diagram at left (ZinCo, March 1998).

Hirt's Nigrescens Black Mondo Grass 5 Seeds
Ophiopogon planiscapus ‘Ebony Knight’ At 6”, ‘Ebony Knight’ reminds us of Liriope with its grassy foliage. It has rather insignificant pale pink – white flowers in early fall followed by black berries. While slow growing, it is most frequently used as edging or as a ground cover that forms dense grass-like turf. Try it with our Hostas, light colored Heuchera or Japanese Painted Ferns for a dynamic effect. Plant 8-10” apart. Zones 5 - 10.

Adding stumps and other balancing elements creates a sand play area that is so much more than just a sand box. This appeals to a much wider age range than a 4'x4' box of sand (aka litter box). O.K. I'll agree with most of that except for 2 reasons. 1, the litter box is your own darned falt & 2, this only works if you have a pretty large garden if you want to use it for anything else other than a kids playground! ;)

BOSTON FACES THE RISING SEA
Plenty of street art is political or otherwise confrontational in nature — but some of it exists purely to put a smile on the faces of city dwellers going about their daily routines. This, at least, seems to be the goal of Steve Wheen, an artist who goes by the handle of The Pothole Gardener. Wheen’s project is exactly what it sounds like — an endless series of miniature gardens planted in potholes and other tiny patches of earth around East London. Along with adding a splash of green or a sp...

Plenty of street art is political or otherwise confrontational in nature — but some of it exists purely to put a smile on the faces of city dwellers going about their daily routines. This, at least, seems to be the goal of Steve Wheen, an artist who goes by the handle of The Pothole Gardener. Wheen’s project is exactly what it sounds like — an endless series of miniature gardens planted in potholes and other tiny patches of earth around East London. Along with adding a splash of green or a spray of flowers to the city’s streets and sidewalks, the Guerrilla Gardener decorates his miniature gardens with such delightful curiosities as itty-bitty chairs, telephone boxes, and even tennis courts. Click through to see some of our favorite Pothole Gardener creations, and then visit Wheen’s website for a whole lot more pictures and to learn about the project.

Planting tall grass in Galvanized Tubs for privacy screens or to create private seating areas in the garden....Smart. Put tubs on rollers = smarter. where to buy the nice galvanized buckets though ?!
Planting tall grass in Galvanized Tubs for privacy screens. Smart. Along fence line... bamboo contained! Nice idea but maybe a ceramic planter...
Nadine must do this. Way cool Galvanized Metal Tubs with tall grass as a privacy screen. I don't have a gardening board (I'm not known to have a green thumb...), but think this is a cute idea
Planting tall grass in Galvanized Tubs for privacy screens or to create private seating areas in the garden. Put tubs on rollers. It's a great idea because it contains the grass from growing everywhere.
