Wednesday Vignette: front lawn no more
Momentous things are happening in our front yard. In a matter of hours, we went from this:
In the photo above, the metal edging outlines the areas we’re creating:
- Two succulent mounds, 2 ft. at their tallest. The soil will eventually compact to 1 – 1½ ft.
- 1 ft. wide paths, to be covered with gray decomposed granite (which will also be used as the top dressing for the succulent mounds). The path in the foreground looks wider than it actually is because of the distortion from the wide-angle lens I was using.
- 4 ft. wide Corten planter at the 1 o’clock position, to be used for vegetables. It’ll take a few weeks for the planter to arrive but it’ll look like this.
By tomorrow evening the soil for the succulent mounds should be in place. I may finally get to do some planting on the weekend!
Lot of things going on. Lots of material for future blog posts!
