As I have mentioned several times before, one of my big plans for this season was a new shade garden in our back yard. We have a corner that used to store yard debris and after it was finally cleared, it was still an eyesore.
|No more piles of yard trash but...bleah|
I laid them out to make sure I had enough and to get the right placement for the rocks.
|Enough for a small bed|
|Need an upper body workout? Try some weeding.|
|'Tilled' and ready for weeding|
|More sun than I thought|
And, finally, I added some mulch.
I will also plant something in the big green pot in the back, hopefully to hide that ugly wall. I've tried cleaning that stain that's a result of a large branch leaning against the house but I haven't had much luck. I' also going to add some mulch around the bed to keep the walkway weed-free and to make it a bit more attractive.
All in all, I think this will be much nicer to look at on those hot Summer afternoons while I read books outside as the dog sniffs in the field.
