I think I must have put in well over 12 hours the past two days on the front yard renovation. I am exhausted, but as soon as I post this, I’ve got to mow the back lawn (much neglected).
At 11:30 am this morning:
After 6 hours of labor, the front yard is starting to take shape.:
The plants on the lower part of the picture have just been heeled in, as I’m moving around a lot of plants that were already in the yard.
I think I am about 1/2 way through…. there is more sod to take out (I think I took out 1/2 of it so far). I want to make a annual flower bed that has room to walk around it, and then have more plants to plant for the perennial/evergreen part of the front garden. Then probably 2 loads of shredded bark mulch to put in, to keep everything easy to maintain.
Its going to take me two weeks to accomplish this, as I don’t have whole days of free time in the next little while. I am really happy with the path that I made with blue chip rock, and my choices of plants so far. If I get a chance, one day I will “map out” my garden beds to give you guys an idea of what I actually have planted in there.
The back lawn is calling my name…… sigh.
