The Little Veggie Patch

Piles of Apple Crates (still in use by the orchard) live across the road from my house….I love the way they look.  It something about their time worn quality and their continued ability to do the job they are meant for.   An orchard on the other side of the world (Victoria, Australia) is recognizing the value of these boxes and is selling them for vegetable gardening….for cheap.  If you are in Australia….check them out…or if like me, you live near an orchard, perhaps you might want to inquire about a reuse project…

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.
