|There was more space to plant than I anticipated! I still bought too much mulch.|
This weeks project was a bit impromptu after planting a small vegetable garden by the front porch. We had a million bags of mulch left over thanks to my inability to do math. Rather than take it back, I figured we have plenty of places to put it and there was no way I was going to haul them back to the store after unloading them in the rain. I say work smarter, not harder. So, in the back yard it will go.

We are on seven acres after all, there are plenty of spaces that could use a little mulching. I started with a shady little bed tucked away by the back deck. It is surrounded by all these beautiful Azaleas but it was a hot mess of built up leaves and weeds. There is even a cute little path with stepping stones and some beautiful brick work that was hidden amongst the years of neglect.
|And, I still have a ton of mulch left!|
There were also a ton of wine bottles that were left over from the project I started at the old house and never got to finish. I used empty wine bottles as a garden border. I believe I saw it in an issue of Ready Made Magazine a few years ago. Sadly, they're not around anymore.

I'll even bet you can find something like it on Pinterest, too! I am quite proud of the work and so glad that it is done! Way ahead of schedule for pool season, too!
