Ok… let’s be honest… there hasn’t been any activity here since Christmas BUT there is good reason!

Verkade Landscape Design is getting a facelift just- in-time for Spring!

As aspiring style editor to the gardening world, I LOVE to share my view on landscape design, garden decor and stunning plants.
So… I’m launching Verkade Garden & Style,  a new garden design
e-magazine that will showcase fresh and gorgeous garden design inspiration.

Stay tuned…
