I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know Heidi Heiland this past year. She is a great Minnesota gardener and a profile of her and her Plymouth waterfront yard and garden will be in the May issue of Northern Gardener magazine. The issue will be online and on news stands soon.
I picked up so many tidbits of info and great ideas from her. One that has stuck with me, is the notion of establishing the garden emblem in your space. Consider placing a piece of art or sculpture that is distinctively you at the entrance or a focal point in your garden. It’s your personal billboard. Great gardens sing of the gardener who tends them and this establishes the tune of the space. It creates a harmony between the garden and the gardener. Plus, it’s pure fun. It’s your garden logo! Your own Nike swoosh.
