Garden and Pond Tour 2013 - Part 2

This is the front yard - along the street.
Part 2 of the Merritt Island Ace Hardware Pond Tour

This garden is in a gated community, and I wanted you to see how vegetables can be grown, even if one doesn't live in the country.  Most of the plants are edible.  I love the use of red mulch and pavers, as well as the use of in-ground and container plantings.  The garden is neat and compact on a relatively small lot compared to the other gardens we visited on the tour.  The gardener uses every inch of space to the very best advantage.
The pavers are decorative and functional.

You can see how close together the homes are in this subdivision.

I love how every inch of space is used 
I like the use of siting areas in the middle of a vegie garden

Lovely use of the pavers, don't you think?
Cabbages, cabbages....yum, yum, yum!


  1. Hello Gail, I am the homeowner of this property. I just stumbled on you site. Thank you for doing such a beautiful job with photos. You captured the event beautifully. I am having trouble with HOA wanting me to replace all that I've done and put grass back. Fining me 50$ a day since Dec '13. If goes to court may I use your post. Thank you again Maryann 655 Limerick Drive

  2. Sure, Maryann. I hope it goes well for you. I don't see how they could thinkit was in any way detrimental to the beauty of the neighborhood. I call it an asset.

  3. Thank you again. I love your site. I will keep in touch and let you know if anything 'happens' :-)
