Hello fellow gardeners!

I've been a frequent lurker here and decided to join in. Love the ideas, tips and advice.

Live in Southwestern Ontario and although it's still wet and kinda icky out, I'm already planning and scheming for the upcoming blooming season. Hubby catches me online looking at gardening sites and just shudders. :)

Was hoping I could tap into all of you for some ideas for a new bed/walkway...if I post pics, can I get some advice?

Thanks all!

Welcome! Oh yes, please do post pics.
As Lyn has said, we can 'offer' lots of advice - really though, there are some very talented and knowledgeable people here who would be more than willing to share their successes, and failures in some cases, with you.

Postby jjgrinder » Mar 22, 2011 11:32 am I tried to get the pics to just post here but of course that didn't work for I think that link will take you to them floating around in cyber space somewhere...:)

Thank you all for the warm welcome and offers of advice.

So if you take a minute to look at those pics....basically what I want to do is build up the entire area between the house and those trees. Make a walkway surrounded by plants.

I am open to ANY and ALL suggestions. From the simple to the not so simple. Budget is somewhat flexible (within reason of course).

Limitations are...well...of course the house is right there. A TV antenna, and the A/C unit. Two basement windows.

AGAIN ANY ideas, tips, advice would be appreciated. Hubby and I are both relatively handy and would do most of the work ourselves. Right now, the mulch in all our flower gardens is the red I'd like to at least incorporate that.

I am open to anything!!!!! So feel free to throw out your best!

Thanks guys :P
