LDA member Kathy Simpson recommends checking out Deborah Silver's blog, Dirt Simple.

Deborah Silver is a landscape designer in the Detroit area who also runs a retail store (called Detroit Garden Works) devoted to fine and unusual garden ornament and specialty plants. Many of her blog entries feature her innovative container designs, including detailed information on how they are constructed.

"I have been shopping at her store and following her work for many years," Kathy says. "She is generous with her methods in many cases and is truly an inspiration for those of us who design seasonal containers for our clients. I have kept this treasured resource to myself for too long--time to share with LDA!"
