Serenitea Garden

Category: Teashop Garden Stories | Posted: Wed May 27, 2009 5:20 pm

We're opening a teashop here in Sandy, OR. We're redoing the landscaping to make it open and available for seating. The side garden is actually going to be enclosed with a privacy fence for private functions or even thoses days you want to sit in the garden with a cup of tea. We might be calling it our Serenitea Garden. :)

There are three of us opening this teashop, my good friend Charity, my husband and I. Even though I don't have much experience in reclaiming landscape, being the daughter of a landscaper got me nominated for the job. What a crazy job it is! The previous owners, I've heard, had lovely wildflowers everywhere...well the land has been untouched for awhile, those lovely wildflowers have become overgrown weed giants! You name it, it's probably in here!

I'm hoping that by writing about my experiences as a first time gardener feeling like 'David taking down Goliath' will encourage me to continue tackling this crazy landscape and hopefully I'll have the same outcome as David, with my end result being a serene, lovely opposed to a dead giant ;)

The end result will be worth it. Just tell yourself every day "Self, you can do it!" Keep picturing that beautiful, peaceful tea garden filled with paying wedding parties and such!! Oh, and research everything you can. I can already see it in my mind's eye. YOU CAN DO IT!

Herbs go a long way and smell great. Good luck!
