LET­TER from the out­door LIFE­STYLE ed­i­tor

Outdoor Lifestyle Magazine - - Editors -

When­ever I take the stage at a gar­den­ing event, I al­ways pref­ace that I am a land­sca­per by trade and a gar­dener in my soul. Now, this may not seem like an odd com­bi­na­tion, as most peo­ple as­sume that th­ese two roles are the same, but trust me, they are very different. When I go into a back­yard with my land­sca­per hat on, I am look­ing at ways to add decks, pa­tios, spa­ces for bar­be­cues and hot tubs, shade, pri­vacy and all of the things as­so­ci­ated with out­door liv­ing. As a gar­dener, my pri­or­i­ties change. I am look­ing at op­por­tu­ni­ties for grow­ing beau­ti­ful plants, trees, shrubs and all sorts of gar­dens.

Land­scap­ing is my job, but gar­den­ing is how I feed my soul!
