If you look up at the header image, you can see a stone retaining wall that runs from the garden shed over to the garage. Above that retaining wall is a mostly sunny spot that will eventually become the garden.
Here are a few pictures to get some idea of what we’re hoping to do.
We’re building raised garden beds because the soil is a lot of clay & sand. The landscape timbers mark out where the beds will be with paths between each for easier weeding/planting.
Here’s the middle of the garden along the fence looking out toward the street.
That is the beginnings of our garden. Hopefully we can get all the raised beds built up three timbers tall and filled with dirt in time to put the plants in.
I just ordered some seeds this week too. I’m planning to start as many as I can inside using handmade newspaper seedling pots. I’ll try to post those once I start making them.
What does your garden look like? What would your dream garden look like?
