The beginning of getting a yard in shape!
When we moved into our house 3 years ago the banks were caving in because the seller had sprayed everything, leaving nothing but death...we started by planting forsythia, then I kept buying what ever looked good and popping it into the ground. Now what I have is overgrowth and weeds, no grass...but my hubby did build a lovely gazebo. My daughter is wanting to have a wedding in our yard in October...so THIS is the rush to create something worthy for her wedding! All suggestions and idea are wanted!

Wendy B on Apr 12, 2012Oh how I'd love to do that! We will add a pathway and some steps coming down...but I highly doubt we can afford the flagstone...thinking for now it will just be wood and mulch. This is going to be a process over time though. I will have paths and ponds and lots of mulch this year...maybe next year we will get to add things like flagstone pathways!
Peggy Davis on Jul 06, 2013I can't quite tell when the hills and valleys are on your property. One thing that might help would be for you to figure out the way the water runs across the property and make swells so the water is controled. you can choose a fast growing grass that is tough, like rye grass. this will give you a green look. Rye grass grows pretty well from seed and doesn't need to be mowed often. Once toy have this established you can work of a larger plan for the garden. I think the gazebo is very lovely.
