This Spring, I am making a huge effort to get the gardens at both of my houses up to par. For a very long time, I’ve embraced the natural look of the landscape: a hillside full of ferns, wildflowers dotting the yard, moss covered logs in the backyard that also provide habitat for wildlife.
And, guess what: ALL OF THAT STAYS. Because I am a believer in zero pesticides, zero herbicides and keeping as much natural habitat as possible around the house.
But the front door and immediate areas around the house I can’t really use that excuse. So I am investigating container gardening.
And what perfect timing: These are my new Danny Seo gardening tools made with sustainable bamboo handles and super strong stainless. Good looking (with faux leather ties at the top) and are just $5.99 in stores like TJMaxx right now.
And as you may know, I also have a line of sustainably made outdoor planters including this guy which the magazines have been going nuts for. So, this is also in my arsenal of supplies to get my front door ready.
What should I plant? Thinking low maintenance ferns, herbs or succulents might be the way to go given my busy travel schedule (and I really can’t count on others to help water my plants).
