Carving a bed out of lawn by hand while carefully avoiding the birch & lilac roots is no easy task! So imagine my surprise when on a hot Sunday afternoon Jason said, "I'm tired of mowing around the birch & lilac. Let's put a new bed there."
And voila! In a little over an hour's time a new bed appeared!
I "dug it" but Jason didn't. Instead, he used materials we had on hand and a few "down & dirty" landscaping tricks.
Now, if I could only find a spot for my latest yard sale treasure...
Last week we spent a few days digging for buried treasures. Our project was to clean up the overgrown landscaping at a beautiful old farmhouse. Our goal was to salvage everything possible and prune it back into shape. We were amazed at the treasures that were hidden in the overgrowth. We uncovered perennials, shrubbery, stone retaining walls, a stepped pathway and a beautiful brick patio. Read on to watch this stunning transformation.
