One of the after effects of the kitchen renovation,was the garden and its pathways,
to say the least,
were left a mess.
Everything had settled.
Dirt covered everything.
Now that the weather is much cooler in the mornings,it was time to get out there and re-do everything.
The pathways, which I had put in after TheTree went down, were never quite right.
It was difficult to maneuver the garden wagon through the pathways.
The garden hose kept getting caught on everything.
Plus,there was still some grass that needed mowing.
I hate mowing!
I have started….
Still to be done…..
Drainage, in the garden, is important here.So everything has to slope towards the lake.
And there is quite a difference,in height,between the house/pool area and the lake.
So,I need to have “levels.”
But the water run off from the gardens needs to filter through gravel.Or rocks.Or plants.
The above photo shows a rock/gravel drain-pathway to the lake.No chemical fertilizers are used at TheGreatWall,but I do tend to have an erosion problem.Because there is quite a slope in the yard,the gravel pathways slow down the erosion problem.
…..and when this is all complete there should be NO grass left in the back yard….
Nothing to mow!
I hate to mow!
Thanking the gardening Gods for cooler weather!
