I am so excited to find this site. I just joined the Dirt Doctor's Crew (by snail mail). I do so want to garden; have bought quite a number of books, looked at lots of web sites, etc. My mother nor father were gardeners so this is a true beginning gardener.

I think I will have to get some help for my garden design. Are there any suggestions/recommendations for this type service. A gardening firm, a landscape architect?

Any info will be appreciated.

Hi and Welcome to the forum!!! I'm new too and I live between Houston and Dallas and we don't get a lot of rain normally in our area. You probably get a good bit of rain during the summer months and that would sure be a plus for gardening.

To answer your question you could first go to your County Extension Agent for recommendations for your garden design. Also you could maybe contact the Horticulture Dept. at the college in Alvin. Too you might talk with garden club members that have gardening experience and I'm sure they would help you. A lot of Master Gardeners will come to your home and work with you on your landscape planning.

Good luck and have fun!!! :wink:

Thanks for the good advice, Dancey. We are getting lots of rain so far. But usually by the end of July through September we get no rain - or it seems that way to me.

Again, thanks.

Welcome aboard the "Organic Train" Glad to hear there are more and more people converting to organics every day. You will find 'The Dirt' magazine very helpful in your day-to-day organic life and also Howard and Leslie have an excellent section of business's that you can purchase organic supplies. I wish you all the best and if you have any questions, please post and we will try to get the answer.
Again, welcome to the forum.

Welcome WannaB: :D

I'm new at this "gardening" thing also, but some what confused.

Is the 'garden' where one grows veggies?

Is the 'landscape' where one grows plants and trees?

Do ladies "garden" and men "work in the yard?"

Note: I've heard that the Master Gardeners are NOT all organic in their methods. Ask first and that should include any Landscapers you my chose.
