Hi. My name is Lindsy Cullen, BillyOh blog editor. Okay. I’ll keep this self-serving virtual space sweet and simple—our vision is to help you create a garden lifestyle that’s practical and essentially impressive. Let’s make that happen!
Lindsy Cullen, BillyOh blog editor, talks about her dream garden and 4 lovable dogs—Buster, Bamba, Bella, and Stumpy.
What do you like best about having dogs as pets?
The best thing about having dogs for me is that they are always happy to see you. They love it in the summer, especially when we go out into the garden and they go in the paddling pool. Best moments ever!
Aside from dogs, what are your other interests?
I love cooking and spending time with my family. I love plants and animals, mostly my dogs. I believe that giving life a nice balance is the key to happiness. I’d like to keep an ample room for exploring new things and making greater things out of simple ideas and concepts.
What kinds of things do you like to read? What's your favourite book?
This is a given. I love interior design books. Home design is my way of life. Suspense thrillers would also do well, you know, a nice supply of shrieks. Makes you feel alive!
What kind of music do you listen to?
Mostly power ballads. I’m a frustrated power diva. You can laugh now. Ha-ha!
What's the best type of garden for you?
Simple. The best type for me is the one that’s set in a tranquil space and very relaxing. My design philosophy is that you can never go wrong with something that gives you the peace and quiet you want.
What's your dream garden like?
My dream garden would have a nice summer house with big sleepers full of different colourful plants, maybe a pond, a nice set of furniture and a big heater for the later times at night.
Is it something you already have now?
Still in the works. But I’d like to believe that what I have now is more than enough to give me and my dogs a space to bask in the sun and just enjoy.
Which part of your house do you like the most?
I like my living room the most as I have three windows so the light always comes streaming through.
Untrimmed grass. Meh.
Least favourite person.
