Took a piece of board, spread glue over the board and applied tissue paper (checked) over the glue. Smoothed out, then glued wallboarder on it. Lightly sanded the edges and over top of it. Applied stain over entire picture and wiped off to appear old. Put poly over entire piece.
After many years of having dogs and contending with the yellow spots in the yard I came up with this idea to make it a little nicer to look at. I first timbered off an area off the back
porch. Filled it with mulch and put in concrete pavers for the walkway. Then started planting shrubs and flowers inside the timbers and around the border of it. Made sure they were far enough away from the dogs MAIN area of use. Also put in a concrete fire hydrant for the male dog! Works great, no yellow spots. In the fall we also mulch leaves to put on top then wood mulch on that. Someone told me they decay of leaves helps to keep the smell down, it does work. Also I use the bed for starting shrub cuttings. Everything thrives in the soil. Maybe this will help others with the yellow spot problem. Have not put a roof on the back porch yet, thus the umbrella for the dogs.
Does anyone know the name of this plant? It was given to me by a client and I started out with one small clump and now have many. They get about three ft. high and in the fall get a thin stem at the top with very tiny pink flowers. Nice color in the fall. Will grow anywhere.
