Landscaping

Here is an area where folks can discuss their ideas, problems and suggestions on creating the perfect landscaping for their log home.

Latest Activity: Feb 5, 2012

Experts and beginners welcomed... and don't forget to add photos of what you've accomplished so far, or areas on your property where you'd appreciate some suggestions from others.

Some of the things you might consider exploring here are when and how to plant spring-blooming bulbs before the ground freezes; how to share cuttings from your favorite flowers; how to create a perfectly relaxing area with a bench feature deep in the woods where you go for long walks, how to draw or repel birds and four-leggeds and insects from your efforts; and whether your herb garden should be near or seperate from your vegetable and flower gardens.

Enjoy!

Yona,
I am in Louisville,TN which is in Blount county next to Maryville and the foothills of the Smokies. I live in a log home and love it and know you will as well!

Avi is awesome and knows his stuff! He provided and planted all of my front. All of my plants are native and most of them bloom thru out the whole season!

Another great thing about native planting, as I am sure you already know, is they will be virtually maintanance free after they get established.

Come and visit anytime and feel free to email at anytime as well.

best regards,
Dave

Thanks for the information on Overhill Gardens

I've tacked it into my Garden Favorites & will be in touch with your friend Avi soon

I hope to enlist his help & expertise in designing our garden & obtaining native plants

I think - No! Make that I believe - that planting indigenous plants is always so much more satisfying

& though I have fifty years accumulated experience & information with plants in the Adirondacks I know next to nothing about Appalachian plants & gardens except for what I've read & the little I've seen while I was there walking our hillside with our friends & Peter our builder

But spring is coming & in spring a gardener's thoughts turn to mud & earhworms & compost & manure & daffodills & daylilies

I can't wait

Where are you in Tennessee, Dave?

Maybe we can visit ...

& thank you too for the welcome to the mountains - we can't wait to get there

Our log home will be mostly finished in two weeks from today & we will be moving a month after that

You just never know what's around the corner ...

I also enjoy planting new things.
Not always sure on certain plants but absolutely love it.
I enjoy my hens and chicks. Bought a old stanless steel tub to put them in and grow them for the neighbor's and friends.
They love them!
Any sugguestion for spring please let us know!

Yona,
I have a great friend that owns and runs "Overhill Gardens" out of Vonore,TN. He has a website if you want to email or call him.

His name is Avi and he specializes in native plants to our area(east TN). He has an extensive native garden from which he sells directly or can do all of the work for you. He would be the perfect person to talk to about wildwood gardens!

WELCOME to Tennessee, you will love it!!

I'm interested to see what you all think about this.

I've been a landscape gardener for 20 some years in the Adirondack Mountains though that was put on hold after we moved to Florida.

Now that we're about to relocate to upper east Tennessee on a ridge way out town I'm ready to get back at it. I've still got most of my landscaping tools.

I am fascinated by the idea of landscaping with indigenous material. I'd enjoy hearing your thoughts on planning & making wildwood gardens

Thanks
Yona

Greg, Regarding the planting of tulip bulbs (and other spring flowering bulbs such as daffodils and hyacinths), I think they should have been done some sunny late fall day. You could try planting one in a pot now though, I guess, and see what happens. Does anyone have any suggestions for Greg?

Hello, I dont know much about gardning or landscaping, but I do like it, I have some tulip bulbs that I didnt plant last fall, would I be able to get out there now & plant them while its still winter & have them come up in the spring or is it to late ? Also how does one get a cutting from a friends flower or plant going ? Apply root starter ? I've always heard you should get the plant back in the dirt before the air gets to the roots if it has any, Thanks Greg Beck in MO.
