Today I wanted to write about something that I think gardener's feel all the time.....doubt. Will it work? What will it look like? How will I go about and accomplish this? How will this plant combination look? This feeling especially comes into play when you renovate an area like what we are doing here at the El Presidio gardens. We have two homes for sale and two projects going on simultaneously. One is our pool getting filled in with dirt while the other is the complete renovation of our side planters. Old vegetation was destroyed and new material is being added. Essentially 3 gardens are being revitalized at the property and they are all being handled at once. As you can imagine, for people looking to buy a new home, this can be an eyesore for everyone including the current homeowners. Several realtors have come onto the property and are wondering what's going on with the pool and gardens. A lot of new homeowners only see what's in front of them as I did when we purchased our place here at El Presidio. However what most realtors or new homeowners don't have is the information needed to address the issue of what is going on with the property. Today the president of the HOA told me about a situation that recently happened with a homeowner seeing our pool and upset that we were getting rid of it. Again, the pool is an eyesore for many people and it was stated at the last meeting that it would be filled in soon or by the end of the month. This was welcome news to me and for many homeowners here as we look forward to it getting done.
