Plants and All That Jazz

Season 2 Episode 210 | 26m 46s

Leslie Martin, an accomplished jazz musician and classical pianist, is also an avid gardener. His quarter-acre plot in the heart of New Orleans features English cottage-style gardening and Japanese traditional accents. He built waterfalls and bridges, and planted trees to create a rhythmic perimeter around his property. His overworked hands were relieved with pebble massages and stretches.
