Winter is the perfect time to dream, visualize and plan a garden. Fortunately, the maritime climate of the Pacific Northwest makes it possible to start planting bare-root fruit trees and roses in mid-to late-winter (late Feb to early March).
Today’s garden column on Woodinville Patch has my article on planning a functional outdoor space. The steps outlined in the article focus not only on design, but also on the importance of soil testing and budget planning. In my experience, a well-designed garden plan helps create an outdoor living space that matches your lifestyle and saves money, time and energy.
