Autumnal Plantings…everything seems to fall into place!

I hired Carol Hiltebeitel of Coco Design Company www.cocodesigncompany.com  to replant my deck planters. The woman is a miracle worker! She has a wonderful approach to design whether it is a pot or a large planter.

I wanted my planter to be chockfull of plants, maintenance free, and anchored by evergreens and perennials. Carol delivered! Liz Donnelly http://www.lizdonnellyphotography.net/ photo documented the entire process.

I hope you enjoy it!

Carol knows plants, flowers and design…boy am I lucky!
Carol searches for the best plants to add color, texture, height and drama to the planters.
Step 1: Buy plants from a garden center. I went to Skillins in Falmouth, ME
Step 2:Carol removes plants from the pots.
Step 3: Carol loosens the root ball to prepare it for planting.
Step 4: Carol gets her hands dirty…getting the plants into the earth.
Tools of the trade, spade, clippers, good soil and shovel
Step 5: Trim the plants
Step 6: WATER, WATER, WATER
Step 7: Fluff the plants
Step 8: ADMIRE…Wowie this looks fantastic
I am so pleased…Carol you are amazing!
