Take a stroll down our garden paths.
Enjoy the sites and be inspired to try something wild and new in your corner of the world. If I can do this so can you!
Pour your self a cup of tea, sit back and enjoy the gardens,
then get outside and do something wild and new in your yard!
All it takes is some inspiration and a little muscle!
This archway was built out of salvaged lumber that was about to be tossed at the lumber yard. A freebie!
The bed to the right holds Silver Artemisia given to me by a dear lady Agnes Wolfe and closer to the archway you see white larkspur. The left side contains junipers, heather and an oriental winter blooming plant that I cant think of the name right now! A Chinese something.
This is looking through the front of the archway. The pathway creates a triangular juniper area in the center. The edges are lined with bricks turned up on their sides. Pathways are easy to create. Here are the steps to follow:
1. Lay out a garden hose to get your design down. 2. Rototill or work the ground about 6" deep with a shovel and then rake your pathway down.
3. If you used a rototiller, then you should have a nice clean, straight edge cut into the soil. This is where you lay the bricks or rocks or whatever you are going to line your path with. An occasional hoeing keeps the weeds in the path at bay.
This pathway is lined with white stone left over from a local church remodeling project. Lucky me! The path marks the entry into the Butterfly Garden and the back side of the Fairy Garden.
