The two major landscape projects for 2011: the garden shed and the water feature, have been completed. All that remains to be finished is the planting.
The garden shed went along ‘swimmingly’. I engaged John Williams, a local contractor, that I had worked with on other projects and he is very reliable. The water feature was quite another affair!!! Read more
I have two major projects planned for 2011. One is having my garden shed built and completing the veggie garden area. I have raised garden beds which will allow me to stand rather than bend over. My knees and back say thank-you.:-)
The other project will be one I have thought about for years! I am designing a water feature and rock garden in the front so that I can see and hear the water-fall while I am in the kitchen. I can already see my bird families playing in the cool pools and building nests in the surrounding plants. Also, it will attract more birds and ‘Sylvesters’ ( my pet name for the toads and frogs). I adore hearing the night sounds of the creatures in a pond.
I am researching rock garden plants that will thrive in our area. As I read, I will review and share the books and the ideas with you. I would love any feedback from you; especially, if you have had luck with a particular rock garden plant that I may or may not study or mention.
