Brown Choices

Brown, below, is a landscape design choice. Is it on your radar?
Leaf Litter Mulch is a choice.

Leaf Litter Mulch? Love it.
Garden & Be Well, XO Tara
Preparing my garden for a tour, 4 years ago, I realized the standard set by local garden designers (Ryan Gainey & etc.), which I was happily copying, wasn't for me, anymore. Instead I went 180 degrees to my Mentors, all women. Each with Leaf Litter Mulch. A choice made in the afternoon. By dark, sooooooooooo tired, still working in my garden, I glanced up to see my garden and began to cry. Why? It was the missing element, Leaf Litter Mulch, I had the garden I had always wanted.

Good choice! Leaf litter also enriches the soil.
