Designing landscaping and working with plants for many years has given me many insights into their special individual requirements and microclimate needs.
I don’t know what it is, but almost every time I get excited about a certain tree, palm or plant, I usually find out that it comes from the Canary Islands, Madeira, the Azores or South Africa.
If you are a gardener, enjoy landscaping or just like to visit the beautiful gardens, we have here in Encinitas at Swami’s or the San Diego Botanic Garden off Encinitas Boulevard, then you are probably quite familiar with the term “ground cover.”
When I was first starting out as a young tree guy and landscape contractor putting myself through school, I didn’t have much experience, but I certainly had enough drive and energy to tackle almost any job using just plain common sense. But sometimes, a little knowledge can save you time, money and headaches.
