Been working since November
on my new garden for my front yard. The gophers has reeked havoc in my yard, so I decided to put in a drought tolerent garden with stones and boxes for the plants. Things are a little crowded since I have been planting since November ,so I'll do a little rearranging and thinning out some plants today. It is by no means complete. Each stone weights 39 pounds and I'm surrounding the empty spaces that will be left open with Calico Stones. I drew up my design and built and painted all of the boxes myself. Yesterday I received a coupon on line from Home Depot to buy one plant and get one plant free. Now, that's my kind of shopping, so I got two cactus for the price of one. The picture shows where I am at this time. I will post a picture of the finished garden, hopefully before the summer arrives . Then I'll be able to sit back and watch the fruits of my labor. And keep in mind this garden will be maintenance free once all of the plants settle in. I must put in a few hours today adding my new cacti and stones, then back to my studio for some sewing.
