Since you have seen the start I thought I would show you the update of my back yard. Still lots to do, but better than it was. It's also fall here now and my basil got nailed by the cold I think and the tree next door dumped.
there is one as the garden was first planted and then how much it filled in (as of today). The area I filled with rock and some plants. and two more from today.
I'm open to ideas for next year. I still would like to put shutters up and change the shape of the garden, but right now mowing is only on my list.
