My first spring garden - rennovating the landscape
I've spent the last several months clearing and constructing. Central Texas hill country means you only get about an inch of soil before you hit limestone and chalkrock! I've been taking pictures of the progress and thought its time to share. It looks pretty plain right now, but this spring it should have that country cottage feel. I'm in the process of planting the beds now, so when everything starts to come to life I'll add those too. Upcoming plans are to bring in large walking type stones and crushed granite for around the beds. The big dark hole in the dirt is where I am starting to dig for a pond and water feature! I want to put in a brook, we'll see. This has truly been a transformation! This whole area was full of overgrown bamboo and every kind of weed you can think of! Oh, and most of the materials used are recycled materials and this is where I have been learning how to use power tools!

Karen Mitchell on Jun 08, 2017We had to remove some of our picket fence and I had so many plans for it. I told my partner about my plans too. a few months went by, I was having a rest when I heard voices and noises outside, never thought much about it, Until! Partner said someone came to pick the picket fence up, I was like, what??!!!GONE! He GAVE IT AWAY!!!As you can well imagine, I was angry and upset, I literally cried... Damn men!

Awesome! Getting ready to plan, build and plant a 15'x200' strip of land. I have plans to recycle the old deck into green house and raised beds.
You really inspire me!
What will you use for your pathway?
