Michael was happy to speak with journalists over at Sarasota Magazine recently for their feature on grass alternatives. Michael discussed the impact of container gardening:
“Landscape artist Michael Gilkey is a big fan of container gardening, which refers to growing plants in pots, planters, urns, vessels and boxes, instead of in the ground. Container gardening wastes far less water and doesn’t create runoff that pollutes our bay and Gulf. It’s also beautiful.
Container plantings spice up a grand landscape with accents of color and beauty. In a small lot, they can be the whole show. ‘You’d be surprised how much you can grow in a 12-foot-by-12-foot area,’ Gilkey says.”
