What is Home Botanical?

Home Botanical is a website run by me, Lenny. I’m an avid gardener and a firm believer in doing things yourself. I’ve been gardening in the dry Phoenix climate for well over six years now, and I’ve come to learn a thing or two about how to keep plants alive.

My wife and I recently purchased our first home and have a long list of fixes and renovations we’d like to get done. Like most people, we’re not made of money and can’t afford to have a professional do all the work for us. What we do have at our disposal is my dad, an experienced laborer with knowledge in just about everything. It’s not an exaggeration, the man built a house for my family with his bare hands before he was 30!

What I’ll do on this site is document all of my efforts guided by my dad’s experience. My intention is to provide you with realistic guides on how to duplicate my projects. I hope you can learn from my mistakes and successes, and can muster up the courage to try it yourself!
