You can see more about how this project started here and here.
This first picture, you can see our next step of putting landscape cloth down. I had previously sprayed the grass to kill it all, but we want to make sure we make it as tough as possible for weeds to come up through the decomposed granite pathways we were ready to lay.You can see our existing vegetable garden in the foreground...lettuce anyone?
Through this all, we had lots of company. About 5-10 kids were constantly visiting with us from the playground whenever they were outside. We got all kinds of questions:
- What 'ya doin?
- Can we play in the dirt?
- When do we get to come in?
- Can you build a secret passageway that you only tell me about?
- Can we plant pizza seeds?
What I will say is THANK GOD FOR REYNALDO!
He was my saving grace, hoofing those wheelbarrows back and forth to me so I could unload and spread all of the material. Here he is cleaning off the walls making everything look perfect. When he smoothed the dirt in the first bed, I thought it looked so perfect, I didn't want to plant anything in it.
