Quick garden make over
The garden by our front walk has been an unsightly eyesore since we moved in. Twenty years ago someone laid down a layer of rocks and planted ivy. I'm pretty sure it hasn't been touched since. If the ivy ever climbed the wall it had long since fallen down. It was a mass of dirty, leafy, ugly, brownness. I've slowly been ripping it all out, one trash barrel at a time. Yesterday I came across a pile of free iris plants. This was exactly what I'd been waiting for. It took the girls and I about three hours to pull out the rest of the ivy and all the rocks. I laid down one bag of dirt and planted my new plants. I do love a good inexpensive project. All it cost me was three hours of my time and a bag of dirt.
