Photo courtesy FlickrNow is the time to plan the Thanksgiving landscape. Visualize evergreen bones, carefully pruned bare branches, and consciously groomed beds and paths. Summer’s abundance will be a graceful arabesque on a decorous structure.
After many years of driving myself nuts with ill-considered complexity, I can now maintain the garden with three tools: sharp pruners, a power mower, and benign herbicide. The tools themselves determine the fine points of layout. Thorough grooming of the property takes half an hour.
