The Succulent Designs By Mary Test Garden

This is the place where I get to experiment. This garden is my true testing area because it is mine.  I’ve researched these plants extensively and have observed the same plants in the area.  I have experience with placing plants in similar landscapes and usually choose so-called bullet-proof plants.  Even under similar circumstances, each location has it’s own micro-climate.  The plants chosen for this this garden are drought-tolerant, lush, calming with a neutral palette.  Palette is a good word because I often think of plants as paint and the garden my canvas.  Succulents are a good way of showing color and getting a little wild.  See the succulents underplanted below.

Updates showing how much my garden has grown and has become more colorful are coming soon.  Stay tuned!
