APLD Design Magazine

APLD logoAs a member of APLD, I enjoy a lot of benefits. One of the best is their magazine, the designer, which I’m sharing with you here. I feel confident that everything in this magazine has been through “extreme vetting”! The products are real solutions and the practitioners are real people who know what they’re talking about. One thing this issue confirmed for me is that I really want to visit Austin, TX!

Have fun browsing!

StormwaterWise Landscaping

Arlington Residents! I recently attended a contractor-training day with the StormwaterWise Landscaping program. Did you know that you can receive a significant reimbursement for residential landscape projects that improve your stormwater management? The drawback to this program is that it is based on a lottery that only happens once a year. The lottery opens up on March 1st, so I urge you to check it out. As they say, you can’t win if you don’t play.

Find all the details on the county website  or contact me for help understanding the program.

2017 is All About ‘Greenery’!

2017 is All About ‘Greenery’!

Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2017 is a no-brainer for the landscape. ‘Greenery’ is meant to be fresh, lively, and symbolic of a fresh start- all the things a good garden should be!

What will you do outside in 2017?
