Deck Garden Makeover With Drought Tolerant Plants!


I was assigned a deck garden makeover recently for the Hallmark daytime show, "Home & Family" with Cristina Ferrare and Mark Steines.
If you like home and garden shows, you'll love this unique daytime show where all the guests are experts from this genre!

When I design a garden makeover for television, one of the first things I do is secure the very best looking plants available.
This is TV after all!
The Planting Conditions
The deck is open and sunny and has a southern orientation, meaning it receives generous sunshine most of the day.
Read the rest and see tons of photos on my Garden Center TV blog where I name plant varieties, garden accessories and prices!:

I recently completed a deck garden makeover for the Home & Family Show on Hallmark Channel. Although, a TV project, this is a landscape design anyone can implement at home.
This is the "before" photo of the deck I was assigned to beautify.
I had two narrow planting strips like this to create a dynamic garden. I was able to do it by planting in containers, recessed into these areas.
After photo: Shutters were painted, window box added along with planting towers and drop-in containers full of plants. See my blog post at Garden Center TV for more photos and details! http://gardencentertv.ning.com/profiles/blogs/arm
