Whether it’s the joy of reconnecting with the land or the pleasure of purging flower beds of stubborn weeds, gardening surely is therapeutic. Get to digging your way out of a funk or simply enjoy these warm days in the garden with these fun tools.
Ellen and Mac Ball’s love of gardening is clear from the moment you step inside their Uptown home. On a recent visit, their dining room table held a bowl filled with water and a floating red and white striped camellia flower that looked like a candy cane.
When the Balls began work on their yard, the idea was to expand the existing garden and create a space where they could grow herbs, citrus and greens. Working with their friend and landscape architect Blayney Fox Myers, they came up with a shared vision: keep it natural, edible and not overly manicured.
