Cindy and I have moved five times in the last ten years. At every residence and growing zone I have been challenged to meet growing conditions to have a successful garden. I try initially to evaluate every site and also to blend the garden design with the architecture of the building. Through the years we downsized considerably to the point where we are now in a very small cottage sized residence in south central Kansas. My past gardens have always had super turf grass as I have been an expert in the turf grass industry in my past employment. Well I have decided to go with a cottage style garden for this residence, and eliminate much of the turf on our small corner lot.
