MY NEW KITCHEN COUNTERTOP

I moved into this condo in March of 2016 and overtime I slowly redid parts of my home.  I did not have the budget to redo everything at once but new that there were things that I could not live with long term.  This years redo project was the kitchen countertop.  

What was once a mixture of formica and laminate has now thanks to Stone Age, been transformed into the most gorgeous quartz.   I love the new look and how airy it has made the space feel.  


Some of the materials that I purchased are:

USING DECOMPOSED GRANITE AS MULCH IN ORANGE

Small but mighty!  What was once lawn, is now the envy of the neighborhood.  This garden uses decomposed granite as mulch, a berm to aid in rain capture, California native / drought tolerant plants and flagstone to add paths.  

This garden is also not crowded with plants.  There is plenty of room to allow each plant to grow and mature.  There are also decorative rocks to add interest to the garden.  



Some materials used...

  • Palm Springs gold decomposed granite from South West Boulder and Stone.
  • Baja Cresta boulders
  • Flagstone
  • Ceanothus spp.
  • Calylophus hartwegii
  • Salvia mueleri
  • Blue Glow Agave
  • Gambelia juncea
  • Apricot Mallow

REVAMPING MY AEROGARDEN

 I love gardening and being able to grow my own food.  There is a thrill that I get from picking herbs off of my own garden.  Cooking with them and not having to spend money buying them.  In this video I revamp my Aerogarden and show you what I have done.  

For those of you that are interested in indoor aeroponic gardening then I would highly recommend you purchase your own Aerogarden.  I should also mention that I live in a 424 square foot space.  Yet I can garden.  So can you.
