I'm in the LA Times!


Down the gravel path with Stephen Orr
The author of 'Tomorrow's Garden' hopes to interest gardeners in the use of gravel. Here, he talks responsibility, sustainability and landscaping with crushed stone.

See a great article by Debra Prinzing on my new book here.

Hi, Stephen, I'm loving your book and will be reviewing it for Kirkus Reviews and GardenRant. I'm one of the GardenRant partners of another Rodale author - Michele Owens - and hope to be joining you all for the May 13 event at Rodale. Can't resist hanging with Michele, meeting you and Ethne, etc.

Hi Susan!
Thank you. I'm so happy to hear that and I love gardenrant. I look forward to meeting you at the Rodale Institute

this is great Stephen! we are getting married in our backyard in four weeks and have been struggling with our gravel. also - i'm wondering if you know how to solve this problem. My roses are blooming so beautifully now but i need them to bloom in four weeks for my wedding. do you have any ideas? would so appreciate.

Stephen Orr said...

Thank Heather!
I don't think there is anyway to stop their progress... it's all up to the weather. This happens to me on photo shoots all the time, If you want to add some color maybe your could add some roses in pots that you buy in full bloom right before? Not sure if that works in your design scheme.
But in any event I'm sure it will be lovely and Congratulations!!

Hi Stephen,

I hope you're having an awesome week! I thought you might like this infographic I helped build about the health, mental, and financial benefits of gardening (http://blog.lochnesswatergardens.com/how-gardening-benefit/).

If you think your readers would like it too, please feel free to use it on What Were the Skies Like blog. There's code at the bottom of our post that makes it super easy to post on your blog. It's all free (of course). If you have any questions about posting it, let me know and I'll try to help.

I don't know where else to contact you so I just posted a comment here. :)

Thanks!

Just saw the L.A. Times article and really enjoyed it! I think you're a very good photographer. It's a challenge: you're trying to show what's going on in these various gardens, yet still have a good photographic composition. I think you find a very good balance between the two. Cheers!
