4. Looks good so far.

Will be interesting to see how it works out...keep us updated.
I have heard of people doing it but never seen it or the results.
Is that a bluebird house I see there?

5. Saw that type gardening at Disney food & flower back in March.

very interesting I thought it would be good for those that had very limited mobility.

6. Elevated plantings can ward off some pests, too. This IS a great idea!

7. Does your book go into detail on how you do the straw bales?

I am thinking of trying it this year, but I can't find where you explained how it was done....here? Your blog? I was only going to try it with a few plants to see how it goes for me. I have so much trouble with my soil...the only place with enough sun is in the front of my house, and I sit on a steep hill. It seems that all the nutrients in the soil get washed down into the street, because I can't even grow nice easy annuals without them looking sad. This just seems to be the perfect solution if I can make it work.

I have slopes, too, that I wish to develop. Here's one idea for how to do it:

9. Thanks. That is absolutely beautiful.

My problem is not the slope, since I have junipers planted on the slope. But there is a small yard and garden at the top of the hill where it is level before the hill, and it just does not seem to have what is needed to grow things, even when I put fertilizers on it. I am just guessing that everything washes out of the soil since there is no other reasonable explanation.

However, there is a hill that has no junipers on it, and it is a pain to mow, so this might be a good idea for that spot. I will have to study this more because I love it.
