Barbara's "Anything That Grows" Garden My Great Outdoors | Apartment Therapy New

Location: Rockaway Beach — Queens, New York

We live at the beach in Rockaway, Queens and spend mornings and most evenings in the garden from April through November. Our gardening style is "anything that grows" goes. Objects that wash ashore often end up in the garden like the boat float we painted copper and the old fan thrown out by the grocery store up the block. Thanks Barbara!

I think it really shows the generosity of spirit of the in habitants. It's clearly a smaller space with neighbors very close, and although there's lots of stuff, it doesn't look cramped. Instead, it looks like there are many places for the eye to travel and to rest. Really nice. posted by kushkush on July 8th 2010 at 11:17pm view kushkush's profile This is perfect. posted by NiceRack on July 9th 2010 at 12:08am view NiceRack's profile What a peaceful place! I live in Astoria, Queens and have a small garden about half this size with a small patio. I want to fix it up almost "anything that grows" style. However, I have a huge Mulberry Tree hanging over the garden that blocks most sunlight. The attempt to plant a vegetable garden this summer has proved to not be very fruitful. Any advice/suggestions for shade-loving plants/foliage? posted by stephentyler on July 9th 2010 at 12:39pm view stephentyler's profile My outdoor space is a work in progress, but I'm tryin
