You will find our thoughts on how to make this season even more enjoyable as well as a few tips from the gardening notebook.

A quick thought:

Autumn displays are wonderful ways to welcome guests and passersby.  One possibility for an accent piece to your front porch, stoop, or entryway can include displays of ornamental kale with willow shoots coming out through the middle to add height and interest.  Collections of squashes add color that reflects the leaves in the landscape.

This is a great time to prepare for the winter months as well as the upcoming spring.  Most importantly though, it is a time to enjoy the season with its abundance of colors and crisp cool air!

Welcome!

Welcome to our new J A L A Garden blog!

We would like to invite you to join us as we share a deeper look into the art of Landscape Architecture.  Please follow us as we share our thoughts, current designs, tips, and overall enjoyment of this craft.  Our goal is to make this an open conversation that explores all aspects of design.  From the personal interests and dreams of the homeowner, to the hard work of the craftsman, we hope that this becomes much more than educational but rather an appreciation and a joy for the outdoor spaces that surround us.
