In March we had a landscaping company come out and do most of the heavy lifting to get our backyard in shape. To finish it off we needed to add new plants and more mulch. On Friday, we had 5 cubic yards(!) of both soil and mulch delivered to the house, then on Saturday morning, we went to the Raleigh Farmer’s Market and picked up a bunch of new plants. We found herbs and flowers for the new planter boxes, some new perennials for our other raised beds, and hanging ferns for the front porch. After a quick beer and lunch at Flying Saucer it was time for manual labor!
I am amazed that Eric could get all these plants to fit! [eric’s note: where there’s a will there’s a way]
lots and lots and lots of mulch and dirt
the finished planter box, one of two
the newly mulched yard with better drainage
plus a little TLC for the front yard too
most of the mulch was used, and a little less than half the dirt so far
