The Green Garden Guide was created as a way to share landscape and garden design ideas, landscape maintenance tips, and green (sustainable) design information with homeowners, landscape gardeners, and DIY types.

It is written by GardenGuy, a semi-retired landscape architect with over 25 years of experience in the landscaping industry. He worked on projects from backyard design to regional park planning, but now tends to spend his outdoor time working in his organic vegetable garden.
