Pictures from garden area

Category: Yard work! | Posted: Mon Jun 09, 2008 5:32 pm

We took some pictures of the garden area where I have been working for a few days. It was pretty messy and looks a lot better now.
This is the flat area where I am going to let the grass grow now.

These next two are the terraces. They were all broken down and I had to replace the wooden pieces and shore them up. They still need a few rocks under the boards. I put the soaker hoses there and the top one has zucchini planted. I need to do some more seeds later today.

I put flowers in the tin tub. I will put more pots or tubs of flowers in the grassy spot and at the bottom of the terraces.

Of course, I had a great helper.

Between the grassy area and the terraces are a lot of small hollyhocks that will grow this year and flower next year. I had to take care not to cut them down or walk all over them.
dr had to take a couple bridge shots.

The lower back yard with the apple trees

and a couple pictures of the rose hedge. This is just one end. It goes about 12 feet and is taller in some areas.

I still have lots of work to do but this is some progress to date. dooley

I'd like a cute helper too! Your garden is lovely, you've certainly been busy. I like your planter arrangement, it looks so cool and fresh. That rose hedge is BIG! and good-looking too.

Oh that rose hedge is amazing Dooley. Twelve feet you say - that's an awful lot off roses!!!

Your terraced area is coming along well but you must have had backache after clearing it all out and then having to replace some of the wood and shore them up. Nice to see that Chance is supervising the labourers and keeping you all in order. LOL

Great job on the terrace work to you and your helper.
I love the use of the tin tub for flowers and of course the rose hedge is amazing. How long does it take for a plant to get that big?

Your yard looks great! Wish I had a windmill and bridge like yours.

The roses were growing on a three foot fence when we moved here six years ago. I pruned it and watered it and dr put up a lot more fence for it to climb. Now it's really gone to town. I think this is about the most roses it's had. It divides the front from the storage area and does a very good job of hiding the mess. dooley

Thr gasrden area look really good. You have dome lots of hard work.
I like that Zucchini area. That really has promise. What else are you going to plant there?
That tin tub full of flowers is looking very nice.
I can see in your poses that you are a proud gardner....and rightly so. Well done, you.
