Where to even begin?
Hello, all! Since we've already had a little snow here in the northeastern US and the ground is frozen solid, I've been relegated to the indoors for the winter. I have a large area that I want to fence and make into a back garden. I'm a little overwhelmed with this giant blank canvas...does anyone have any tips for starting from scratch? I've had many garden beds in the past, but for this area I want to create a real haven, and I just don't know how to get my ideas from my head and into the space. I have plenty of plants, but I'm afraid to put them in the ground and then change my mind. I really need a plan! How do you design a space? What is the first thing you do?
