One of my biggest dreams related to moving to the country was getting to build my own garden. I made grand plans, bought a car-full of plants, and now I feel both a little overwhelmed but also overjoyed by the prospect of having space to grow things. So far, I’m mainly focusing on tending to fledgling bushes and trying to avoid the giant black snake that likes to sleep in our lilac tree, but it would be amazing to make-over everything in one fell swoop. That’s not in our budget right now, so I’m living vicariously through this Brooklyn backyard makeover that comes to us from Matt and Jessi of Green & Ground.
These two were lucky enough to find a house that came with a (rough) backyard and through a lot of hard work and some major plant bed planning, they’ve create a little urban oasis for themselves, plant ladder included.
