Ep. 1-11: Landscaping Outside the Box | Leanne Tarleton

Howdy! In this episode I spoke with a local gardener here in Houston! I’ve been wanting to reach out to some local folks to get their take on gardening in coastal Texas where things can get hot and humid for months at a time. Leanne Tarleton gardens in The Woodlands township, a unique community that has worked to preserve some of the woodlands that the town absorbed but is also dictated by homeowners association type rules. Leanne has found a way to create a unique landscape that is both interesting visually but also works well for pollinators and wildlife. There is a way to garden ‘outside the box’ when given a set of rules to go by and Leanne is doing it well! We talked everything from starting her garden from what the landscapers had installed to the burgeoning Houston food scene!

You can find Leanne here: Digging The Woodlands to follow her beautiful feed!
