“Rescue a Relic” (pages 28 & 29):

When you live in a small space, you have to make good use of every space. Southern Living Magazine loved what we did with a falling-down, detached garage behind our Lexington, KY Cape Cod home. Enjoy the clever ideas that made this wreck into a charming centerpiece of our backyard garden.

“Plan a Potting Shed” (pages 76 & 77):

This potting shed was first the centerpiece of a garden exhibit we installed at the Southeastern Flower Show in Atlanta, GA in the 90’s. With the shows end, it was dismantled, then moved to Jon’s family property in Livingston, KY, also the site of their home & garden store, the Rockcastle River Trading Company. It was painted an English red to match their home and other outbuildings. Come visit this beautiful store and surrounding gardens, now the site of the Rockcastle River Trading Company Proven Winners Botanical Trail, the first of its kind in the United States.
