I have LOTS of gardening to do, but, well - baby steps. I have this foot-wide strip along the house and the driveway, full sun, some sad looking plants. Here's the before:
Here's what I want it to look like:
So yesterday, I spent time (and sweat!) digging up all the raggedy plants. Two of them are actually worth keeping, there's a nice overgrown/woody shasta daisy, and a mum back there, so I transplanted those out to the back. The evergreen shrub in the front was a real mess - a really big gnarly stump with new growth, I had to cut it out and dig out the roots.
So now I have it all cleaned out. Those are some plants I bought last night - a fescue and a flat of a nice succulent groundcover. I don't know why I bought anything - I have a ton of plants I've been getting free.
So I had to come home from school for lunch today and plant for a bit! It's going to look great eventually-- I still have some plants to move to the very back corner, but I gotta get back to work! I can't wait for them to fill in.
