The Weather is perfect this weekend for gardening.
Several years ago I began the slow process of removing the lawn in the front yard and making it all flower beds. This weekend I decided to finish the job.
This little curved section was all that was left of the grass (the other side of the sidewalk belongs to the city but I might get rid of all that grass as well since I have to mow it and have taken over a big chunk of it anyway).
(its an old picture but I forgot to take one today before I started digging)
So I dig out the grass and then started to work on the soil. First I had to get the rocks out…here is what I dug up
Next I worked in some organic material (peat and compost) and raked it out
Planted a few new things and moved some other things around….in a few weeks you wont even know its new
Here is the whole yard (its only 40 feet wide)
And a few flowers (I love chives and allium)
and the back yard gets some work tomorrow
Have a great Holiday Weekend!
