Hello! (I am the newbie and fiancee)
I am working mainly on the other gardens, he is in charge of the huge ol garden that we set aside for Veggies mostly.
We will have a gravel bog garden, a small piece for a rose
bush and a couple complemtary flowers
, a garden bordered with Marigolds with an arrangement of Coleus and Celosia around a custom birdfeeder, there is a small garden near the upper part of the pond that is set sside for a butterfly/hummingbird garden, equipt with a butterfly feeder (and if we actually see hummingbirds, we will add a feeder for them too), There is a garden that is now home to 2 10' pine trees
and a ton of daylillies, which will be converted into Blackberries and Raspberries and maybe a grape vine or two, and then just small things like around some trees
We have our work cut out for us for sure! LOL We are considering another small water feature near the main garden at some point and plan on making a cortyard type patio in the biggest curve, but those might have to wait untill next year.
The pond is tackling us at the moment, we got past the dry, sandy, rocky top soil and now are on to the thick clay and had to get out the pic axe! Only has to be 4' deep, LOL, no biggie...
