Blog of the Week: A Way To Garden

Some months ago I discovered Margaret Roach’s blog, A Way To Garden, about her beautiful upstate New York Garden and loved it. But it has evolved and grown (as our blogs do) and I just re-discovered it and now really really love it. As gardening blogs go, it is one of the best…I want to share with you a regular little feature she has…the fun little drawings by Andre from a beautiful revolution.

About this Margaret writes:

“Cookie-cutter gardens all in a row would be no fun, and the garden’s a place for each of us to express our individuality, not try to recreate someone else’s picture or point of view. Would that all of life were just like that: Do your own thing, no questions asked, no negative glances cast.”

I couldn’t agree more.

The site is a great mix of garden advice and guidance mixed with wry humor (see categories ‘hot p(l)ants’ and all the ‘woo woo’ entries). Go take a visit…I am adding it to my blogroll now.

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.

    Andre and I are happy to both inform and/or cause laughter anytime; thanks for the good words.

    I want to steal my neighbors garden ideas – he is single and his mom does his gardening – must be nice, eh? It is quite colorful all summer long!
