Table of Contents: Issue Number 9 • Grand Gardens

March 3, 2014

What makes a garden grand? Not size, necessarily, or wealth. It’s more a state of mind, and in this week’s Grand Gardens issue on Gardenista, we’ll be exploring that je ne sais quoi that elevates an everyday garden to the realm of special. We’ll be celebrating–and sourcing–garden luxury of all sorts, in some surprising forms: lavish compost bins, grand urns that sprout potato vines, a new look for Grandma’s fussy cut glass vase, and the world’s prettiest privy.

N.B.: Table of Contents is a new Monday column to fill you in on what’s coming up every week on Gardenista.

Monday

Tuesday

  • We’ve discovered what may be the world’s grandest three-bin compost system. Coming tomorrow, Meredith deconstructs the elements in Steal This Look: A Grand 3-Bin Compost System.

Wednesday

  • Trust Janet to find an elegant garden urn that doesn’t look the least bit fussy or pretentious. (Planting it with potato vine helps.) In fact, she found ten like that. Check back on Wednesday, when Janet will unveil 10 Easy Pieces: Elegant Garden Urns.

Thursday

  • In the latest installment of our new Hardscaping 101 feature, Ellen learned everything you ever wanted to know about Pennsylvania bluestone. She’ll be sharing her secrets in Hardscaping 101: Pennsylvania Bluestone.

Friday

  • Don’t think of it as an outhouse. Think of it as a wilderness adventure; Michelle certainly does. She’ll be taking us on a tour Friday of Outbuilding of the Week, a stylish Swedish privy clad in burnt wood siding.
