we first moved in, we had this holly tree that was both leaning
this is what the yard looked like before we started building the wall
decided to use a portion of the existing wall to start the new wall
lots of dirt!
this point, Leandra took over building the wall while Eric started
the stopping point on day one...
starting again on Sunday morning... more digging and leveling!
the raised bed filled with soil
holly tree was removed in December, and it took Eric a few
Eric began by refilling the hole where the stump used to be
cubic yards of soil was delivered by dump truck,
Leandra standing next to the dirt pile for size perspective
wall is about halfway done at this point; we were unfortunately
the view from behind the brick wall
done! the finished area will triple the available garden space
a view from the side, all filled in!
stay tuned to see how we use the new planting bed in our garden pages...
