    When Melbourne, Australia-based landscape designer Ben Scott first saw a newly built farmhouse on a 20-acre property about an hour’s drive south from the city, there was no garden to speak of. The only existing feature he had to work with was a stand of slender, native eucalyptus trees with a strong, architectural silhouette. That […]

    An outdoor shower gets lonely in the winter. Pipes freeze, and by late November you start to wonder why you ever installed it in the first place. Enter the pop-up outdoor shower. Without a need for fixed plumbing, these showers hook up to a standard garden hose and at the end of summer, get pulled […]

    “There isn’t another site like this available anywhere near Portland, Maine,” said Russell Tyson of Whitten Architects, “and it’s the site that makes this house so unique.” He’s describing a jaw-dropping 36 acres perched along the oceanfront in Scarborough, Maine, the site of many native habitats—rocky coastline, woods, wetlands, and meadows included. Most of the land is in a conservation trust to preserve its natural […]

    Little Bluestem Grass, Schizachyrium scoparium When I visit large gardens, I am in awe of their beauty—as well as the work that is required to make and keep them gorgeous. It makes me privately feel a bit smug that my own little yard is so manageable. But there are other times—like when I visit New […]

    I once had a vegetable garden. It was small and cute (roughly four by six feet), slightly raised, and enclosed by four thin planks of wood. The best part? It had come with the house, and presumably, all that needed to be done was plant seeds and, as they say, just add water. I did […]

    Imagine how useful it would be to have a big, deep coat closet in your garden. For inspiration, consider Julie’s made-from-a-kit shed in Mill Valley, California (shown in the photo above). As you can see, she has kitted it out with shelves,  hooks, and plenty of wall space for pegs. Like a coat closet, a wooden garden […]

    Move aside, fronds, grasses, and seedpods. Just when it looked as if wispy foliage had taken floral arrangements hostage for the season, we noticed something surprising: blowsy billows of hydrangeas. Hydrangeas are the comfort food of flowers. Impossibly frumpy and fusty, these bobblehead pompoms are the antidote to the slender, the desiccated, and the severe […]

    Interior designers (and self-proclaimed Japanophiles) Roman and Williams got their start in Hollywood, and still bring a set designer’s critical eye to every product they choose for both their online shop and their downtown Manhattan Guild emporium and restaurant. We’re currently craving a hand-forged folding Japanese gardening knife they came across on their travels in the Banshu region in […]

    (In her monthly column for the Wall Street Journal, Gardenista editor Michelle Slatalla tackles interior and exterior design challenges. In this installment, she wonders how important it really is to unplug in nature. Hear her out (and see the original in the Wall Street Journal). It’s very cold and lonely in the middle of the […]

Potted plants—and also a privacy panel. Here are 10 we like. For more on privacy panels see our posts: 10 Easy Pieces: Instant Privacy […]

    Recently on Remodelista, Margot took us through the guesthouse of Jacky Winter Gardens, an artists’ residence and informal showroom for the work of partner artists. The cottage has undergone a masterful redesign, and the gardens are changing, too: Photography by Rhiannon Taylor.

  • 10/03/18--01:00: Gardening 101: Switchgrass
  • Switchgrass, Panicum virgatum: “Tall Panic Grass” If you are a resident of the East Coast, the much-lamented loss of North America’s tallgrass prairie may be a vague concept. It is almost impossible for those of us not in on plains with distant horizons to imagine what 250 million acres of open grassland looked like. It […]

    I’ve always known in theory that if you plant spring-flowering bulbs (such as tulips, daffodils, crocuses, and alliums) you can fill your garden with successive waves of color for three months while you wait for summer. But in my garden, after the spring flowers on the azaleas and rhododendrons fade? Nothing—until June.  I eye my […]

    Squirrels make it look so easy. But digging a deep, narrow hole to plant bulbs can be a challenge. Bulb planting tools reduce the hard work by grabbing dirt in a cone when they are pushed into the soil, creating a bulb-ready hole. The simple rule of thumb I was taught is that bulbs need to […]

    High levels of arsenic and lead in the soil, a decrepit factory building, a courtyard roofed over with half-rotted plywood and tarpaper, a courtyard paved in concrete—we’ve all heard this Brooklyn story at least once. But surprise, there’s a happy ending for one garden on an industrial block in East Williamsburg. When FABR Studio + […]
