Clever Idea: Wedding Registry for a Garden Makeover

Wedding registry for garden makeover trend via

I have heard of many interesting and off beat ideas for gift giving to newly-wed couples, but a garden makeover has not, until now, been one of them.  A company called Bottom Drawer in the UK has evolved a scheme by which couples can work through them and a local team of landscape professionals to figure out a garden plan and then break it out into gift-able gift registry pieces.

So, Aunt Rose can give you a bed of roses, the Mother-in law to be can make sure you eat right with a freshly planted kitchen garden, and maybe the best friend can give the privacy hedge newlyweds might desire.

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.

    This is such a great idea! I was just thinking about this sort of thing the other day and how perennials and trees would be the perfect give for couples who already own a home. The only issue is that so many people are still apartment dwellers at that point of their life, but I think a housewarming tree would be so cool!
