May 2013. South side of house.
Ready to start planting
Digging out the barberry. The boxwoods stay.
Old sidewalk removed. Flagstone walkway in place.
Sidewalk WAS done but gets dug out so drainage pipe can be put underneath.
A bit of a mess.... especially when it starts to rain later!
Blue False Indigo, Fire Witch Dianthus and Red Sedum are in.
Coreopsis, Boxwood, etc.
Daisies, Woods Purple Aster & Yarrow
Brenda was out of town when all these were planted. When she got home, she was underwhelmed.
But with a little time to grow, things got better.
6 weeks later.
2013 had about 5 weeks of no rain mid-summer so the watering, watering, watering begins.
1 year later. Brenda feels better now!
May of 2014
Planted a Black Gum tree too.
From the side door.
June - and things are blooming now!
Front side landscaping in the next blog.
