Etobicoke Toronto garden backyard clean up

Etobicoke, Toronto backyard garden cleanup, weeding and edging


Here are some pictures of a garden cleanup I did yesterday (yes, there is a garden bed in there somewhere!) After digging out the weeds, I trench-edged to define the beds and prevent the grass from growing into the gardens.

Paul Jung Gardening Services in the news!


Withrow Avenue Public School Silent Auction 2012



Well,  not earth shattering news, but I'm helping out good friends  in Toronto by donating a garden consultation to the top bidder to benefit their son's school. Withrow Ave. Public School is having a silent auction on February 23 and I wanted to help with a good cause:

"The Withrow Silent Auction is one of the main fundraising events for Withrow Avenue Public School and reaches out to over 400 families. Proceeds from the Auction support the learning environment for the children. In past years funds raised have been used to develop the greening committee, the safe arrival program, arts programming and library resources."

Thank you Sheila and Dave for this opportunity to give back to the community!

A blooming witch hazel in Toronto

The 'Arnold Promise' witch hazel (Hamamelis x intermedia 'Arnold Promise') in the backyard blooms so reliably every March that it is, to me, the true harbinger of warmer days. Here are some shots from last year. I planted early spring-blooming bulbs like snowdrops and crocuses but they've been destroyed gradually by the squirrels over the years.

Garden structure, garden bones

Cedar screens, both natural and (hu)man-made
You may come across the term "garden bones" which simply refers to the more permanent features of a garden like paths, pergolas, fences, gates, gazebos, statues and mature (evergreen) shrubs and trees. Even dead stalks and seedheads from the previous year can be included as structure. Much like our bones hold up muscle and skin, the garden's "harder" framework gives definition to the more fleeting flowers and foliage we enjoy. Winter is the season, for better or worse, that forces you to see the connectors of the yard without being distracted by colour. You'll have a better sense why things "flow" or not, why a strong focal point in the summer (could be a flowering shrub or small tree) isn't one for the other three seasons, and why a fence's colour or material isn't as substantial as it should be.
