Project Long Overdue

We kept the black plastic on for 4.5 months and so far no grass has re-surfaced. Also, make sure to seal the edges as tight as possible with wood /rocks or bricks in order to keep the air and sunlight out. Once the plastic is off, we’ve spread mulch generously about 3/4” deep.

Backyard Oasis

Make a space that works for you! We still wanted an area to have our morning coffee, so we needed to incorporate a walking path and a little seating area. Overall, we love our new garden (and have way less lawn to mow)!

Pete’s Paradise

I love the colorful flowers that bloom at different times during the year plus the variety of plants that come with the Garden in a Box program. I just recommend the preparation of the soil with good compost and lots of rototilling.

Hanging Gardens of Babylon Revisited

I love the water conservation and beauty of flowering plants. Once established, the garden takes very little maintenance. Overall, I am so pleased with the results on the south side of my property. I am now planning to create a xeriscape garden in front of my home (east side) as well.
