About Me

Hi there!

First of all, thank you for visiting my about me page, you’re a rare unicorn!

Secondly, hi! (again), my name’s Andy Gibson and it’s because of people like me that the saying goes “Never say never!”


Well, let me start at the beginning…

I grew up in a small town of about 10,000 people, then I moved to a bigger city nearby to study at university. I ended up getting a job there, and so I stayed in my quick-paced city.

The traffic jams, the busy people rushing somewhere and nowhere never bothered me, I actually enjoyed it! Aaah, the good ole days!

All was well, that is until I hit my 28th birthday! It came out of nowhere – I just got fed up with all the haste, all the frustrated people trying to make it quicker to home after their jobs.


That’s when I started to dab my pinky toe in the possibility of moving back to my childhood town.

Long story short – I bought a house in the middle of the woods with a 5-acre land, just 10 miles outside my hometown.

OK? So, why do you have a gardening site, Andy?

Great question! Well, because even though I grew up in a small town, it still wasn’t like living in the countryside on a farm. Now, as I’m writing this and looking outside of my window at the forest in front of me, it feels like I’m living on a ‘so-many-things-to-do’ land!

I was clueless for the first year living here. I didn’t know what to do with the 5 acres of grass all around.

This was me: John Travolta from Pulp Fiction and Julie Andrews from The Sound of Music (yes, both at the same time):

While the movies were great, the feeling I felt back then standing on a hot summer’s day in the middle of an overgrown grass field- not so much!

Fast forward 5 years later and I have a bit knowledge on what to do and what NOT to do in your yard and/or garden.

So, here’s me putting my 2 cents out there on everything related to maintaining small and bigger yards, growing your own plants in your gardening and much more!


I appreciate you visiting my blog! :)

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me!

Happy gardening!
