My Great Outdoors: Mo'Bland's Philly Patio

Name: Heather & Mike Mo'Bland
Location: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Type of space: Patio
Tell us about your outdoor project and how you enjoy it: With all the concrete and debris outside of our home, Heather just likes to keep it clean, green and colorful out back. One big garden bed sits in the back and many smaller pots fill in around the perimeter. Whether it is sunny mornings with cafes con leche and the paper or cool evenings with tasty local brews, we love to hang outside...

How did you create it? Luckily, the bed was already there when we moved in. All the pots were added by Heather. After a battle with smothering ivy and wicked weed trees, she has a wonderful home for her "babies."

Recommended store, site, product or resource? Greensgrow Farms - urban non-profit farm and nursery, various local fundraisers selling plants, Philadelphia Water Company - Gave out free water barrels to keep the water out of the waterways and into our garden, Pete Morrison - Heather's father has the greenest thumb of anyone we know.
