This amazing Do-it-yourself project started in August 2011. The existing turf was removed and replaced with dymondia, other drought tolerant plants and an attractive mulch of bark.
The gravel path was installed using stabilized granite and peach pea gravel, resulting in a pleasing, easy to navigate, surface.
All work done by homeowner with the exception of the most laborious aspects of turf removal. Thank goodness for gardeners! There is no sprinkler system in use. Currently watered by hand. The garden was a very satisfying project that took a couple of months to complete.The ongoing maintenance is fairly simple. Occasional weeding and the addition of new plantings when the situation calls for it.
