  WHEN the gardening takes place in urban asphalt/concrete situations as in mine, hiding as much as possible the sterile, hard, dull views provided by ugly structures is vital.  In the north garden, for example, I can sit in front of the garage and see mostly green, blue sky and white clouds.

This clip shows the work in progress.  I do not think there is much beauty yet, however, the shade is spreading consistentlyEventually the south and west gardens will reduce the heat significantly during certain hours, cooling off the yard and the house.

In many gardens there is intentional beauty and not a not much else rule. Down this neck of the concrete/asphalt is my way or the highway. Pragmatics, theory and praxis.

                                        that is that
