Sun City West properties; How to have a gorgeous garden by an artist.

Real Estate Agent with Award Realty

I thought I would share the wonderful talents of my new friend Glenda Koenig.

Glenda's floor plan www.azgrandestates.comShe moved here, Sun City West Arizona, in 2008 from Nebraska.
Her daughter bought her a 1319 square foot home without her getting to look at it. She assured her mother she would be very happy. It had two bedrooms and a place for her to garden.

Gardening is very important to Glenda. She has a degree in Fine Art, was a landscaping designer, had a landscaping business at one time, and had a florist business also.

Unfortunately, she know nothing about the Arizona weather habits and soil issues. The first thing Glenda did was to gather as many books on Arizona gardening as possible. She studied the soil, kept track of the daily temperature and humidity,and the direction of the sun. Finally, she designed her garden.

Don't you just want to stay here?   www.azgrandestates.comAs you can see, Glenda has a very small area to garden in. However, I am sure you will agree it is beautiful as well as very peaceful.

She put down cement tiles to create a pathway and surrounded this with small rocks. There were several trees that were brought in and are pruned to perfection. She created her own water feature with just the right amount of noise by her lanai. One of the walls was painted a deep purple and a beautiful mirror was placed on the wall to create a window effect. She added many vines and trellises to give you a lush feel.
Perfectly pruned trees    www.azgrandestates.comYou could have this garden too!
Just like any perfect Japanese garden, where ever you eye looks, there is beauty.

Glenda is available to help you with your garden. If you have a Sun City Grand property, Sun City West property, Corte Bella property, Sun City Festival property, or Arizona Traditions property and would like help, please contact us. There is a small fee for her services and she is worth every penny. She will be able to help you keep your garden within the HOA guidelines.

I am going to have her help me with my Sun City West property. Photos will be shared!

Pam, what a wonderful talent.  I've always loved gardening and, no matter how much I like it, I could never create something that beautiful.  I can't wait to see your before and after photos!!!

Pamela, your friend sure did her homework as it would be very tricky to plant in that HOT climate of yours!  I love all the containers-they are the way to go in a confined area as they are mobile and add dimension.  Great pictures to illustrate Glenda's talent!
