The Landwoman

Blog by Marta Puig

My story



I started this Blog in October 2014. And I call it The Landwoman. The reason is I somehow felt identify with a publication called The Landswoman (with «s»). This publications idea was to promote and help thousands of women (and raise awareness upon men) on the importance of assuming men roles during the Great War.

The motto, on those times, was «Dig For Victory», and with their work, there is no doubt, they helped to win the war. But the reality goes far beyond, because the great challenge of these women, was not only to become responsible of the fields or the work in the factories, or win the war, thereafter, women were to be free.

Why do I feel identify? Because this made everyone aware of a new way of living.

My dream is to bring gardens and landscape closer to people and promote awareness of it’s importance in our lives. After all is part of our daily life, and it’s all what we’ve got. So we must live it to it’s full potential. This is nothing new, but it’s to be rediscover.

My aim is to speak about landscape, gardens & design. I hope it to be a window to the world of landscape and gardens, their poetry, their “masters” and their history. And certainly, also about the world around us,  because what is landscape otherwise?


NOTE please that I do write in spanish most of the entries, and it’s hard to keep up with the translation of all of them. That is why you may need to use the Google Translate built in your browser. It’s not perfect. But I hope good enough. Apologise for that.

Keeping lavender in good shape

Lavenders are so Mediterranean that if you don’t have a lavender on your back garden (living in the south), or in a pot, you are a true exception. Their fragrance can be amazing and they tend to be very tough, is easy to see them on nearly every road side. They grow, they flower, they need […]

Where are you going to garden?

Where can I garden? No doubt the first question is WHERE? If you are willing to grow anything start thinking your options. Many of us don’t have even a tiny little piece of outdoor space, but maybe you are a lucky one. If you are not, some lateral thinking is certainly necessary.

Veranda living! Mediterranean Climbers

Grapevine & Wisteria. The perfect pair! There is no better place to be in a spring afternoon than in a porch looking south. Sun warms you up and the light extends through the day to frame a garden (a landscape or a field) in continuous movement, in full growth.   Undoubtedly the Mediterranean climate encourages […]
