Water; water everywhere…or not enough at all! Water is the lifeblood of every living thing, and yet it can be destructive in its extremes. It’s a resource that is ephemeral and unpredictable – be it by natures’ vagaries or politicians’ whims. The partnering of thoughtful water management with appropriate plant selection is crucial to any garden design. Today the Garden Designers Roundtable presents the topic of water.
We are delighted to introduce Debra Lee Baldwin as our guest blogger this month. Award-winning garden photojournalist Debra Lee Baldwin lives in the drought-parched Southwest, near San Diego. “Water?” she asks. “Ha! I wish.” Debra authored the Timber Press bestsellers Designing with Succulents and Succulent Container Gardens. As a renowned authority on these elegant, easy-care and waterwise plants, Debra shares her expertise in print and online, via radio and TV, and at horticultural venues nationwide. She is one of several acclaimed authors and photographers who share the blog www.gardeninggonewild.com. More info: www.debraleebaldwin.com.
