Nothing I love more, than to see a plan come to action! This hideous area in my backyard has been an eyesore for a long, long time! I finally got around to making it into what I had hoped! I have always wanted to rip out those ugly bushes (there were 2 shrubs and an azalea). I ripped them out a few weeks ago.
Which left this....an ugly mess. All of those bricks, and other debris had been stashed behind there by the previous owners. I had to remove all of the debris.
I enlisted the help of my best friend. She came down from Birmingham to help me! We worked all weekend long to build raised beds. It was a lot of hard work and I am still sore!
I used the old windows that came out of my grandparents home, and built flower boxes to go under them. I still have some cleaning to do. Next I am going to haul in some topsoil and get this bed leveled out. Then I am going to plant some fruit and veggies, and spruce it up!
All of the bricks that I picked up from the bed will be used to create walkway through this path.
Right now it is just a hodge podge of stuff that needs to be relocated. I have a lot of empty pots that are patiently awaiting some fresh plants.
I want to do something cute to the front the of the flower boxes, so they aren't so plane jane!
This is just one of the MANY projects I have to do for this Summer! Now this one is 75% complete, and I can get started on the next one!
