Here is a virtual tour of my garden and its changes over the last 4 years. This is the first home I have owned and boy have I learned a lot about garden design, water catchment systems, pathway materials, and plant combinations! It all started here.
I think the weekend after we got our keys we sheet mulched the lot of it.
Rented a dump truck and made three trips to Camby for horse compost.
We did a work trade with Scholles Native Nursery and planted hundreds of bare root natives.
And they grew!
At first I made the pathway using free bricks on craigslist. But as you can see in this photo unless brick work is done properly, they can be a lot of weeding work.
We moved plants around to find the right combinations of color, texture and size.
We deleted plants that grew too big or did not work for the space and changed the pathway to quarter minus. And voila we are here in 2014 and excited about the new year.
