The area around the chicken run has finally all been cleared, and yesterday I started on a new project. I’m thinking it should take me a few afternoons to complete.
If you read my garden posts this past summer you probably noticed there were not a whole lot of weeds in the mulched areas of my backyard. Want to know my secret?
Landscape fabric. I’m totally addicted to the stuff. Each spring Costco gets it in stock and I typically buy a few rolls whether I need them at the time or not. Home Depot sells it year round, but when Costco has it in stock, they tend to have a better price so I buy it and save it for various projects throughout the year.
Once I laid the landscape fabric down, I began to dismantle the backyard fire pit. I think we only used it once last year, and it’s sitting smack dab in center of where I want to build a new garden.
So I simply moved the rocks from the fire pit, and created a fat rock boarder about 2 feet from the back of the fence.
Okay, now I need YOUR help. I would like to plant some TALL flowers against the fence, and some shorter ones towards the front of the rocks. The space is very shaded and is about 3 feet deep and 15 feet wide.
Do you have any ideas?
