This is quite a nice gardening article. I think this is the website of the profiled landscape designer.
I'd like to experiment a bit with storing rainwater to use in watering projects later on. I'd be interested to see how she moves the water from the collection system to the garden. Pump? Hose? Sprinkler?
Clearly, my idea about creating a coop with a living roof was not an original idea... Well, it was original; it just occurred after somebody else had already thought of it...
Now this is a nifty idea. This is a composting fence. You stick your compost bits in the top (where they provide shade and privacy) and they break down gradually to provide nutrients to the plants down below. Very cool.

These are some other misc. pictures from the Seattle Times today.
