A Garden Can Be Anywhere

by Lauri Kranz

When I look through A Garden Can Be Anywhere I find myself so inspired. I want to spend time in everyone of the featured gardens. The aspect of this book that resonates most with me is that Lauri is gardening with love. A Garden Can Be Anywhere is less a how to garden book (although it does have that too) and more of a philosophical approach to gardening. Lauri’s approach is very meditative. Take the time to get to know your space—notice where the sun hits, how much rain you receive, what your soil is like, how much space you have to work with, what the temperature is and what wildlife visits your garden. Take time to build that relationship with garden and you can then make decisions that work with your garden, instead of trying to force it to be something it’s not. Gardens can look many different ways and when we work with a space to create a garden we find diversity, inclusion and respect. We find that we can create a beautiful garden anywhere.
