Flower Gardening: Turning a "dead" area into a southern style courtyard
We have a magnolia tree that was planted by my Grandmother in 1918 when her home was built.. Years of neglect caused the area underneath the tree to become barren. The dirt was impacted, hard and full of roots. This needed serious help. My friend Rob was the labor part of our team. I dreamed up the plans and helped with the planting. We now love to use our side entry. Our courtyard is a big hit with our friends and family

Leida R on May 16, 2012GREAT JOB!!! I love it. By the way I have the same chairs. A friend of mine also gave them to me because he moved and couldn't take them to where he was moving to. He did not owned that beautiful planter you have there, though. ENJOY EVERYTHING!!!
Debi M on May 16, 2012I love to "re-purpose" No sense in throwing out something that is perfectly wonderful
