Gardening is the practice of growing and cultivating plants as part of horticulture. In gardens, ornamental plants are often grown for their flowers, foliage, or overall appearance; useful plants, such as root vegetables, leaf vegetables, fruits and herbs, are grown for consumption, for use as dyes, or for medicinal or cosmetic use. Gardening is considered to be a relaxing activity for many people.                  

Just like our homes, our gardens reflect who we are. From the flowers, herbs and shrubbery we select, to the lighting and decorations, our gardens are an outdoor room that fits our personal style.

Whether you have a tranquil retreat, a rose-filled oasis or a casual backyard, decorations such as fountains and statuary are an important part of any design. They create a focus for your garden and set the tone for the rest of the space. Whatever your style, there is a fountain or other accent piece to match your décor.

Hand-picked fresh home grown vegetables have no substitute in flavor and nutrition. Though growing your own vegetables has its own advantages, it can be tedious. A raised bed to grow your plants in, is an excellent way to arrange your garden as per your needs and enjoy a bountiful harvest.

Some of the sights and sounds that could give you the feeling of accomplishment, peace and enjoyment might come from a water fall that makes a continuously soothing gurgle, stepping-type stones and slabs of flat rock placed to create interesting terrain or a pond, moss growing on the rocks,  water lilies floating in the water, plants with contrasting bright colors, waist high decorative grasses with large plum heads that gently wave in the breeze, ferns and leafy rain-forest type plants that give the area a lush green look. 

Whether your desire is for a country garden, water garden, rock garden and such, the enjoyment of gardening comes not only from the finished garden but the path you take to get there.

Happy Gardening!

Outside of work I spend time with my family, playing golf in the beautiful Okanagan, practicing yoga and of course gardening.  I like to plant annual and perennial containers. The 2012 growing season was my first year with a vegetable garden.  I am really looking forward to 2014!
