Anyone who knows me, knows that I have a love/hate relationship with gardening. I dream of having a Martha Stewart-esque garden, but have inherited an overgrown, never maintained, acidic soil disaster. I want to rip everything out and start over again. I tell my husband to not be surprised when he comes home after work to find me wielding lopping shears and a chain saw like a mad woman and all of the shrubs are gone. Someday soon…
If you are like me and love the look of a gorgeous garden but have no clue how to start and / or maintain one – fear not! Coldwell Banker’s Blue Matter blog posted a really great article to check out. I’ve picked up some good tips – in particular, I had no idea that lady bugs were actually good for your garden.
Maybe if I do decide to go on a Leatherface-chainsaw-wielding-adventure one afternoon, I will post before and after pics!
