Project for this year

Postby Blossom » Apr 25, 2008 10:22 pm

My new garden. Measures 7' wd. x 21 ft. long. Made the shape an oval. This is where a square box used to be on the left. Decided to include the snowball bush and put it on an angle.

Made the shape, then cut out the sod.

Added lots of horse manure, black topsoil and sheep manure

A tree stump from the bush, stepping stones, and a bird bath....now all I have to do is fill it up.

Looking good Blossom! I like the hollow stump idea!
