    Revolution Road: A Ground-Breaking Kitchen in London

     

    This time we have a post from Gardenista’s sister site, Remodelista – show casing Alastair Hendy’s kitchen. I agree with Margot Guralnick who authored the post, when she says ‘we wouldn’t be surprised if someday Alastair Hendy’s Kitchen is declared a landmark’.

     

    Photographs for this post were taken by Matthew Williams who helps to bring the kitchen alive as Margot takes on a tour of this stunning kitchen.

     

     

    The Time Traveler’s Garden, By Way of Etsy

     

    Here we have another post from Gardenista, this time brought to us by Michelle Slatalla who shares some stunning pieces of botanical art with us.

     

    These genuinely look like something you would find hidden away in someone’s loft or attic, but to my amazement you can actually buy these collections from Etsy.com.

     

     

    I am the secret midnight garden guzzler

     

    I have to admit that I only really read this article by Tim Richardson over on the Telegraph’s website because of the title, I was very curious to say the least.

     

    Tim takes us a trip through the night time garden of Villa Gamberaia and I completely agree that gardens do seem more authentic after dark.

    10 Backyard Landscaping Ideas on a Budget

     

    Nathan Chandler from HowStuffWorks.com has put together a great collection of backyard landscaping ideas for us that won’t cost the earth.

     

    Some of these ideas include; picking the right plants, avoiding seedy salespeople, buying in bulk, developing recycling ideas but the one that stands out of course is ‘get down and dirty’, like Nathan says; digging, planting and other tasks take a lot of time so either going in full steam ahead and getting the work done can work well or recruiting family or friends to help.

     

    Once you’ve put the hard work in, you’ll be glad you did, after all – hard work and dedication is why the living walls and green screens that we build look so good and last for so long.

     

    There really is no substitute for hard work.
