It was pretty much a big mound of dirt that we kept throwing dead grass on. Our neighbor's yards don't look much better, but I was beginning to get embarrassed of the growing dirt pile.
|Step 1: Rototill the dirt and dead grass|
|Step 2: Even out the dirt with a rake|
|Step 3: Cover the area with weed block|
|Step 4: Add a layer of dirt|
|Step 5: Add plants to your garden. We transplanted a lilac bush|
|Step 6: Add more small shrubs|
|Step 7: Mulch & water plants|
We feel very accomplished and think it turned out great. There was a good amount of labor involved, but the results are worth it. I want to add more to the island by planting flowers for some color. While we were busy outside, Murphy was busy doing this:
We have such a good support system :)
Hope you enjoyed your weekend and got something accomplished.
