Ready for Spring

Last weekend, we were blessed with some tremendously warm and sunny weather. Thus, Mason and I decided to work on improving our yard, especially our front lawn. It was a mess of poor soil, cedar mulch, and somewhat unhappy grass. We were more than ready to improve it for the spring.

Thanks to the magic of Zaarly, we got a load of bricks delivered right to our front yard! (Along with a quarter cord of firewood to help our un-used fireplace look less dismal. Pics of that later on.)

This area of the yard had previously been a section of rock-hard clay, covered with cedar mulch and infested with tons of disorganized monkey grass. Not my favorite.  So we got to work digging, adding in organic garden soil, and creating a border using the bricks.

I planted some flowering groundcover,┬áperennials, and other bulbs as well. Now we’re just waiting for it to grow. Here’s hoping!

    Thanks, friends!

    Megan, we rent as well, but we are in charge of mowing the grass. We just couldn’t take the state of the front beds anymore. :)

    That way the garden is always alive and seen from a differebt perspective.
    It can perform a grreat job on the areas that the mower
    can’t reach, such as around fruit trees, near fences, beside patios, and many
    other places. These should be planted relatively shallow tto help thee root network thrive.
