Staying Fresh

Ray Kroc, the man behind McDonald’s, profoundly pointed out, “When you're green you're growing, and when you're ripe you start to rot.” Staying fresh, like our gardens can be difficult. It’s not a ‘set it’ and ‘forget it' type of plan.  Even if you go the minimalist route, you can’t forgo the effort of keeping it sharp and neat.

It’s all part of making that exterior space special. So whether you’re a novice picking away at a simple perennial bed or you decide to undertake an entire outdoor area, keeping it fresh is what it’s all about.

The best advice comes from Ralph Waldo Emerson.  “It is a happy talent to know how to play.” If you lose the enthusiasm for the game, you’re good to go in the compost bin.
