Oh — I have a little catch up from yesterday — so first off a couple more before and afters!!!

Designing a medicinal herb garden that is also beautiful and vibrant isn’t exactly easy.  Medicinal plants and herbs tend to be on the less showy side  so making it exciting is a challenge but not impossible.  John’s (of John Beaudry Design) version is pretty fab though don’t you think?

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.

    Nice blog post! Thanks for writing about me! Perhaps we could subscribe to each other’s blogs. I am now writing a book called Designing the Bungalow Garden. Check out my FB page under the same name.

    Great job, John. Congratulations!

    I just do not quite understand why the BEFORE picture is taken from an other angle than the AFTERs – makes it a bit confusing.

    Anyhow, now this garden really deserves being called GARDEN – before it more likely has been a desert.

    Good luck and nice customers also for future works,

    Great pics (found them on pinterest)! Can you tell us what kinds of plants you have? Love this idea, just wondering how to start my own–since I don’t have a John to come help me!

    Gardens help us stay healthy and growing our own medicine is an excellent idea. Since I sell greenhouses and promote a healthier lifestyle with having a garden this is really an interest to me.

    I don’t like taking prescriptions and to find a way to grow a natural cure for me would be ideal. Just planting a garden last year and eating the fresh food from the garden saved my life. I am changing everything in my lifestyle to a more organic way of doing things.

    Thanks for the post and great pictures. I’m really interested in learning more about medicine gardens. Do you think there is a cure for diabetes or high blood pressure within medicine gardens?

    looks like two different houses. But, still very nice and I would love to have just that. Will read and see what I can take to call my own.
