|Just a few|
|The stone beds now connect to a small bed I built the other day|
alongside the shed
|From there you can see the stone well and, further|
down the slope, the apple bed
|I can't get around having a downspout run across the stone wall (for now).|
Hopefully we will solve some eavestroughing conundrums in the month of June.
My plan is to grow moss between the rocks and low-maintenance things in these beds once I find topsoil to fill them. I'm trying to stick to a budget and I am now content to wait a year or two to fill these beds with soil and plants I find in the wild. The nice part about these projects is they add instant personality to a new yard, and the rocks are free.
Do you keep to an annual budget for yard and garden projects? Do you receive many plants from friends and neighbours, or have you ever taken any from the roadside?
