Joe's 2013 Gardening Project

Lynne Burke
by Lynne Burke
Joe is NOT a professional landscaper - he just does this for fun - he is now in the process of transforming our extra side lot into a magnificent garden - these are just some of the pictures of his progress I'll post more when it'sdone New photos of how it's coming along as of 8/5 and some photos of my flowers in my backyard behind my house where my other what I call "Great Wall of Joe" resides.
The pile of rocks Joe is working with for this project and the groundwork behind them
The paths somewhat marked off
The back wall progressing
a faraway view of what's going on
A view of some of the progress again - STAY TUNED FOR MORE TO COME
The back wall beds are progresing and we even have some dahlias and gladiolas planted there
He's really come far with the lanes he's building and the layout is really showing.
Here's the back wall of beds and he has mulch laden walkways
This was taken 8/5 so that's how far he's gotten up to that date
