I had the gardens dug today!! Boy is it a lot nicer than me digging. The ground and grass was hard!! He did it in no time with little cost!!
Now I will start working on it.
He did a great job and the soil is so fluffy!! Now to get the bermuda out of it .This message has been edited. Last edited by: silly bird,
Had to have more than one!!! The fence in this area is on the diagonal. So should make a nice bed. Less mowing YEAH!!This message has been edited. Last edited by: silly bird,
This must make you VERY HAPPY!!! So how is the soil?!
"Those that throw mud, lose ground!" :>)
Looks like he knew what he was doing...he must have done this type of work before. Have fun!
work ahead but what fun. the anticipation must be so exciting. thanks for taking us on your journey.
That sure is a nice looking fence...and cedar to boot.
But...not meaning to throw a wrench into your thinking about planting but the fence looks pretty tight...i.e. no light appears to be able to poke through and what plants you have in mind do need light and that fence seems to be able to provide lots of shade if in certain exposures.
I sure wish I had one of those gadgets! Good Luck with pulling that Bermuda grass
Peachy, we have one of those behind the tractor tillers...they are great for large areas...we use it on the veggie garden in the spring. The tines cut deeper than the average garden tiller. What this guy has is wonderful for new garden beds....perfect for Birdie's needs and way easier than doing all that digging..UGH!
Birdie, can't wait to see the finished product now! You go girl!
We have BIG tractors. Way too big to fit inside the yard fence where I want a new flower bed. I've always wanted one that I could operate. That one is just the right size. It looks like a mower with an attachment on the front and the back.
That looks like a Kubota to me.
The sign of a good gardener is not a green thumb, it is brown knees.
I would plan on putting down layers of newspaper or cardboard in between the flowers to keep the weeds and grass down. Wish I had done that several years. I am cutting down on my gardening space now. I have been thinking about converting my vegetable garden into a bed of tall zinnias next year. A friend of mine has huge beds of them this year and they are gorgeous. Good luck with your planting.
Thanks. I'll be putting cardboard and papers down as soon as I find access to some dirt!!
Also looking for some more landscape stones rocks ect. Just going to take it easy till I find what I (think ) I want. Always changing my mind!!
