    Designing An Outdoor Kitchen – Garden Kitchen

    Summer may have faded into glorious autumn but create an outdoor kitchen and you can carry on cooking and dining alfresco the whole year round. An outdoor kitchen can be as simple as a BBQ with surrounding units for easy food prep, to a full-scale set-up with a sink, tap, refrigerator and multiple cooking appliances. The joy of a garden kitchen is that you can customise it entirely to your needs, without the worry of designing a ‘normal’ kitchen, such as fitting everything into a limited space with awkward walls. ‘Twenty years ago, people bought a £100 B&Q barbecue and that was the extent of their outdoor entertaining,’ says Ross…

    This modern eco-home features a garden roof and integrates the surrounding forest into its design!

    Hugging House is a modern eco-home architecture concept that features a garden roof and incorporates the natural landscape of the land into its layout. Noticing the devasting changes that come with climate change, most modern architects look to the natural world for inspiration to help preserve it. Whether that means building a self-sustainable home using a ‘passive house’ construction method or incorporating biophilia into the design scheme, architects interpret earth’s many ecosystems in exciting and different ways. Cuba-based Veliz Arquitecto conceptualized a modern eco home called Hugging House that integrates the land’s rolling terrain and surrounding trees into the layout of the building. Hugging House is a large, bi-level, cantilevered…

    Ypsilanti Township is now home to a garden boasting 1,300 native Michigan wildflowers. How it took shape

    YPSILANTI TOWNSHIP, MI – What was once just a grassy field next to a children’s play structure in Sugarbrook Park is now bursting with life. Some 1,300 wildflowers — among them wild onion, purple coneflower and hairy beardtongue — are taking root on a 3,500 square-foot plot sown by volunteers in Ypsilanti Township’s on Saturday. The plants have one thing in common. They’re all native to Michigan. That’s by design, says Ypsilanti Township Park Commissioner Tajalli Hodge, who first dreamed up the garden about a year ago and on Oct. 2 worked with some 30 volunteers to bring it to life. The seedlings, nestled in color-coded dirt rows according to…

    Try new varieties to diversify the fall garden | Home & Garden

    From the same seed company I also ordered a rainbow mix of radishes called Garden Party. A combination of pink, red, maroon, yellow and white, these are going to be beautiful in my regular salads. Radishes are perhaps one of the quickest crops you can grow, only taking 30 days to mature. Keep in mind that beets do take longer, so you’ll want to start those seeds soon. Kohlrabi is another great fall crop, one that I highly recommend you try if you’ve never planted it. Easily grown from seeds, kohlrabi is a type of turnip that produces its bulbous root above the soil. It is a very strange-looking plant,…
