A Garden Path In Progress
In this post, I'll be highlighting probably the biggest project of this fall - installing a garden path that runs along one side of our house. Eventually, this path will lead from the front lawn to our future backyard patio/outdoor living space. In this particular area, there used to be an ill-conceived low-lying deck, which was unceremoniously demolished shortly after we moved in. (You can read about it here.) After the rumble was carted away, what remained was a large patch of dirt, which then turned into a large patch of weeds and at times a large pile of brush destined for the burn pile. A year later, I decided that enough was enough and that something had to be done to make this area less of an eyesore. Over the span of two weekends, I went to work on installing a new garden walkway and two new flower bed. I won't bore you will the details, but here are a few photos of the project from beginning to end (or should I say, where it is now).
