Sustaining The Trend

Even though the guy next to me at Consumer Buzz sighed a heavy sigh when she said it, You Grow Girl’s Gayla Trail says the one thing the urban female gardeners on her Web site are talking about is sustainability. Sustainability is not going away, says Jenny Andrews, Managing Editor of Garden Design magazine. She reports that landscape designers are using sustainable concepts more and more.

And as far as the upscale readership of Garden Design goes, price isn’t really an object. “If the material is high quality, consumers will pay more for it,” Andrews says. “They’re willing to pay for top quality.”
