Last week we had a beautifully cool, breezy, low humidity day. Outside projects were definitely on the docket. The biggest of these was replacing landscaping. This has needed to be done for quite some time.
The log border was already starting to get a little wonky. Fast forward two years and it was rotting away.
Now it looks like this! Mini-me and I did this one ourselves. The edging is recycled rubber. Nice and flexible to bend and form to what your little heart desires. We had a couple of surface tree roots to contend with so we just made sure to line things up so that I wouldn’t have to pound a stake through the root.
I did end up going through what I can only assume was root a couple inches underground on the back side of this flower bed.
I’m not sure if you can tell but along the right side of the photo is some black edging that was basically laying down…definitely not how we installed it so many years ago. Frost heave has done a number on it.
Complete with a couple new perennials.
I love how this looks so much!
That is kind of our haphazard area. Mismatched pieces of this and that have all found their way over here. It all works though. Now if we’d only get some rain to refill my barrels.
So after a hard days work a little refreshment is always in order.
Just a couple more days of taxi driving for volleyball this week…then two weeks off before it starts up again…everyday. Mini-me and I are also getting ready for a little trip north. The boys are too busy working to come with us. I’ll be sure to share that adventure in a couple weeks.
What are you doing today?
Oh and just for you Chris…
