I'm always looking for ideas to tweek my landscape to maximize its potential. Unfortunately it usually boils down to lack of time and lack of money. Does that sound familiar to many of you gardeners? This project took some time but won't really cost all that much to add a few more plants to help it be more aesthetically pleasing.
My son even pitched in to help out with the bed. His job was to throw the grass remnants in the wheel barrow and dump them in the field behind our house.
Now all I have left to do is lay down some sort of border alongside the grass to help keep it from encroaching into the bed again. Then the fun part comes when I get to decide what to add to this bed to give it four seasons of interest. I'll start making my wish list now!
Now that I think about it, this bed needs a fresh layer of rich dark compost...yes that will finish it off quite nicely.
