Raised Garden Beds #1: Aluminum Can Wall Raised Garden Beds

06-17-2010 12:29 PM by coloradogirl | 21 comments »

I read that raised garden beds are the way to go in Colorado, with our less than perfect soil. But what material to use was the question. Wood seemed the obvious choice, but expensive and high maintenance. That’s when Tom, my Fiance, suggested aluminum can walls. Building them out of aluminum cans and cement seemed like something I could do myself. This whole aluminum can wall, raised garden beds project, gave me a way to dispose of the mountain of beer and soda cans Tom, had accumulate...

New Forum Category - Garden Tours & Art

08-19-2010 08:06 AM by Michal Bulla | 3 comments »

Few weeks ago I received a message from Jroot if we should have Garden Tours & Art forum category. Since there are some forum topics already that fit in this category, I decided to finally creat the category and I moved 2 topics in it. If you find any related topics, please let me know and I will move them to our new Garden Tours & Art forum. Enjoy!

Container Gardening #1: "Digging" Container Gardening

01-31-2010 04:00 PM by Brad | 15 comments »

Why would I container garden? Good question! Suppose you were in this predicament: You resided in an apartment, or maybe you live in a condo with no yard space? What if you were like so many gardeners who actually have a great garden space, but just need “a little something” on the front porch? A container garden is exactly what you need. Many gardeners will even strategically add containers to their flower garden or amidst their flower beds, just to fill a void that nothing...

Weird plants from New Zealand #7: NZ Flax

01-11-2011 05:04 AM by daltxguy | 10 comments »

The New Zealand Flax is completely unrelated to the flax which produced the flax seed ( linseed) but was so named because of the similarities in the properties of the fibres and its uses. The Maori had discovered the 1001 uses of the NZ Flax or Harakeke long before pale-faced Europeans showed up.Actually related to the lilly, it sends up shoots of flowers at about the same time as the lillies bloom.The plant can be quite large, some are over 3m tall and 2m wide. The flower stalks can b...

Using Deck and Landscape Design Software

01-03-2013 08:40 PM by Mark | 3 comments »

Hi All - The attached video may be of interest to some of you thinking about a deck or landscape design project; I captured it from my PC some months back showing how I use a design software package to take much of the risk out of expensive & elaborate projects like this. I thought I’d post it here, and I also have a more extensive deck & landscape design visualization article on my website as well if anyone is interested. I seriously got my money out of this little softwa...

Chickens in the garden

01-10-2008 03:55 PM by XploreOrganics | 45 comments »

Before we moved to our new home we discussed having chickens. We would get a few for eggs and perhaps even a few meat birds…BOY WAS I WRONG. I should have known better that with my personality those birds would win me over – BIGTIME. We moved into our new home and that summer decided to get 3 hens of almost laying age off a local farmer. We would not name them in fear of getting “attached”. When we spoke of them it was the red one, the black one and the mu...
