Monday Miscellany: Leaf Magazine Launches, Gardening Up, and a Great Color Wheel

Great week in the landscape design world! Bloggers (and fellow members of the Garden Designers Roundtable) Susan Cohan and Rochelle Greayer are launching Leaf Magazine today. It’s like an outdoor Apartment Therapy in magazine form – delicious photos, fresh ideas, and some of the leading voices in landscape design and outdoor living.

From the press release, here’s what’s in their first issue:

Yarn Bombs in Seattle – Ideas for a front porch update – What to wear as the weather cools – Apples…history, recipes and more – A garden Before and After project in Long Beach, CA – A seasonal cocktail video – Creating warmth outside in autumn – A Moroccan inspired garden in Silver Lake – Inspiration from an island in Norway… and much more.

Best of all, it’s a free digital publication, so go, get your copy now.

Next up, the lovely Susan Morrison and Rebecca Sweet, authors of Garden Up!, are featured in the latest episode of Growing a Greener World. My local station doesn’t carry it, but you can watch the episode online right here.

I loved getting to see Susan and Rebecca share their tips for designing in small spaces, using vertical elements and design tricks to make a small space appear more spacious.

Last for today, Landscaping Network shares some great tricks for using color in the landscape. Featured with the article is a fantastic color wheel, with an inspiration board and some ideas about the emotional cues offered by each color.

Hope you’ve enjoyed this week’s round-up! Let me know in the comments if you’ve seen anything cool around the web lately.
