5 Ways to Edge Your Landscape with Recycled Materials!
One of the most overlooked elements of garden design for the average DIY gardener is garden edging. It can be laborious to install, expensive, and lets face it...just plain boring. Landscape edging can create a solid hard-scaping base for your garden design to improve curb appeal, and add structure to your garden and yard during the winter months. Here are 5 great ways to make your garden edging more exciting, unique, creative and low budget.
Let's assume you've just completed an extensive landscaping project. You spent a lot of time planning and now its finished and you want to just sit back and enjoy.

I used to grow vegetables in a larger separate garden here at TGG, but have since moved into a home with less space and open ground. I find that I do miss fresh herbs and veggies on my table, and so I have come up with some simple ways anyone can use to grow fresh vegetables even if their space is small, their soil is poor, or their motivation for lots of hard work is low! Now is the perfect time of year to get started.
