All this information should actually be two newsletters. I know
I've always announced new designs in the newsletter before they
were posted on the site. However, it got just a bit turned
around this time. We'll get it back on track.

So if you've already seen some of these lessons and articles on
the site, there still should be something for you in this
edition.

Also, I've also started using video and blog to present some of
the lessons and information. I kind of like it. I hope you do as
well. So if you want to know more as it happens, subscribe to
the blog and put this address in your news reader.

Let's get going.

Landscaping On A Slope - Xeriscaping - circle drive
=========================================

This is a great combination for a design lesson. Slopes and
circular drives are both difficult to come up with ideas.
And Xeriscaping is something a lot of folks want to know
more about.

Even if your project doesn't fall into any of these areas, you
may still get some good ideas for shape or plantings.

Killing Weeds With A Sponge
=========================================

Every time I tell someone about this, I'm really surprised that
I've yet to find anyone who has heard of it. It' just too
simple. Anyway.....

Here's a simple way to spot treat weeds in lawns so not to
create dead spots from herbicide over spray.

Mediterranean Landscape Design - Overview
=========================================

I believe this project has turned into my entire career. There's
a lot to it. However, it's a good thing as there will be a lot
of lessons and ideas come out of it.

This first video is just an overview of the different areas of
the design. Following videos will be of specific areas and
projects.
