Landscape Design Principles, Plants, and Your GardenFriendly Neighborhood Gardening Advice Since 1998
Welcome To My Garden Site
Are you a home gardener? Do you want to be, or maybe you are thinking of doing some landscaping around your place? That was me, too!
I started out many years ago with just a little vegetable patch and some bulbs for spring color… then I became obsessed. When starting to write gardening articles, I wanted to be that voice of a neighbor leaning on the fence, sharing helpful info and gardening advice.
If you want the design steps, planting methods, and landscape care that create a truly beautiful yard, Ilona’s Garden offers reliable, high quality, home gardening tips and growing information. – For a productive and soul satisfying garden, designed by you.
I do have lots of opinions, but the only real rules of nature are its own- and our sense of design should mainly serve the way we would like to see it. I do like artistic guidelines, and that is what I like to offer.
