Gardening is a passion many of us share. But when gardeners share that passion with their life partner, it’s gardening paradise.
In this episode, you’ll meet one Atlanta couple who has been creating paradise in their own home garden for over 30 years.
Margo and Larry Attig are outstanding gardeners with a love story about gardening together. When they met 40 years ago, it was love at first sight. Larry was born and raised on a farm in Iowa and says his family always had a flower and vegetable garden. Margo went to nursing school but ended up taking care of plants instead of people.
These two soul mates and best friends have always shared a love for plants and nature. They’ve been creating paradise by transforming their 1.5-acre property for over a decade, and it surpasses many of the gardens that we’ve visited over the years.
We have loved spending time in every garden we’ve visited over 11 seasons of filming this show. They all leave an impression, but from the moment we stepped foot into this garden, it felt different. Why?
For one thing, it’s just a suburban garden with no big budget or crew or major planning. Instead, it has evolved over the years into something truly unique.
The secret formula is the two people who have created it. They love being together in the garden cultivating this magic place, and it shows.
That’s special. That’s a gardening paradise.
