I’m absolutely elated to have my first feature article in this month’s Fine Gardening magazine. It’s about four quick design fixes that homeowners can make in order to have a more beautiful garden with minimal effort.
There are five sets of “before and after” photos of gardens that I’ve worked on and designed, so each of the concepts has photos showing exactly what to do to get the same effect in your own garden.
Just to give you an idea of how long it takes to go from concept to article, I first talked about this article idea with Fine Gardening editors in October of 2009. I wrote the article in 2010/11, and editor Danielle Sherry visited early this year to take photos of the gardens, and tour a few other Humboldt gardens (just for fun!).
This kind of extensive planning and preparation is why I love Fine Gardening magazine so much. That, and the fact that they do their own photography for the articles, so the articles and the photographs always work together seamlessly. It was an absolute blast to work with them, and the entire magazine is always top-notch.
