Austin and I were in the same Master Gardener class, so when I saw his garden was going to be on the tour, I volunteered to work the morning at his place. I'll be strolling Austin's garden from 9 a.m. to 12:00 noon, so stop by and say "hi".
I found so many great ideas to inspire me in Austin's garden and my visit reaffirmed my notion that I have to learn how to weld. Austin knows his way around metal and his work is so creative and interesting.
While you're in his garden you'll be surrounded by this marvelous fence made of welded panels fitted with recycled wood.
The street facing portion of the fence is covered with vines like this passion vine.
The inside of the fence has a very contemporary feel, which perfectly matches his modern style home.
Recycled roof tiles are re-purposed as planters. Love this!!!
Austin's garden is still new and evolving, but many of his plantings have matured quickly like this ice plant and salvia.
Everything in Austin's garden has style and flare right down to his veggie garden beds.
Thanks for sharing your garden with us Austin. I can't wait to see it again on May 3rd.
