Gardening Lifestyle

It's easy to incorporate gardening into our lifestyle with the popularity of outdoor living and entertainment. This hot trend incorporates outdoor rooms and entertainment areas using hardscape features on patios with BBQ's, fire pits lighting, water features, furniture, rugs, containers and garden art. Making your presence known in social media allows these gardeners to find you.

I used a 24" decorative container of #1 and quart size groundcovers, perennials, a native grass, a semi-evergreen shrub, an evergreen and a tree form of Physocarpus Center Glow to make it into a welcoming retreat.


Loma Vista Nursery offers numerous varieties and sizes suitable as fillers for large containers. These varieties were used in this project: (left to right) Sedum 'Angelina', Potentilla neumanniana, Lysimachia 'Aurea', Juniperus 'Wiltonii'; (back row) Bouteloua gracilis, Scabiosa 'Butterfly Blue', Salvia 'May Night' and Nandina domestica 'Fire Power'.
