Advice from the Owner
The project has taken time, but I have done it all by myself. I dug up and turned over the grass, collected rock from neighbor next door, eliminated several sprinkler heads, and transplanted \added some of my original plants with two garden in a boxes. I let everything go to seed in the fall, it looks very Colorado-y in the winter covered in snow. Everything gets heavily mulched in early spring, very little weeding is needed. It is rewarding to see neighbors slow down and walk by observing the fruits of your labor.Back to Inspiration Hub
