About My Gardens

gardenI've created various garden types in my yard located in Topeka, KS. The key to having a successful garden is to choose plants that match the site's sun and moisture characteristics. Plant sun loving plants in the sun while shade loving plants should be placed in areas that get shade for at least part of the day.
