Hi- I'm Karen Noland aka 'gardenlady911'. This is Miss Elle, my 'assisstant'. I am a garden designer, garden coach, and writer. My 'office' is Little Cedars a demonstration garden where you can observe water-wise plants, water conservation, and xeriscaping 'in action'.
I love to teach people how to care for their plants and to make the most of their investment while doing the least harm to the environment.
Gardening on the Rocks is a place for experienced and new gardeners to find information on 'water-wise' plants that should be used in Zones 5,6, and 7. I am an 'ecclectic' gardener and I do not believe there is only one way to garden; but, my emphasis will be on native plants and sustainable garden practices. My garden designs are developed with the SITES guidelines being incorporated whenever possible.
