This 20 x 20 foot area had not been weeded and maintained for quite a while.
The plan is to put in grasses and native plants that can tolerate dry sun, while creating a screen, habitat and visual interest.
First, the old Boxwood and Korean Holly came out.
Perennial weeds and stuff was dug out.
Soil raked and sifted for rocks:
150 buckets of rocks came out of this little area - about 4,500 pounds!
(Luckily, they found a willing home protecting a stream bank from erosion)
Stay tuned for planting next month.
