Garden of Ideas

"Charles tries to hide" by Steve Cote

Joe from Garden of Ideas located here in Ridgefield, Connecticut, came by our house or rather, property today to help us lay out the land. He was here for about 45 minutes and within that time gave a total assessment of our property and brainstormed a solid plan of what I can do - given light and deer restraints. Brilliant! I've all ready pulled out three rose bushes that have taken over my garden the last two summers since we've lived here. They will be replaced by bee & butterfly loving perennials and annuals. There have been plantings in my yard that I just haven't known what to do with or why they didn't look right and he explained it immediately. He also said that I have a sweet maple tree that would give me syrup if I tapped it! Anyone know how to tap a tree for syrup?
