Seeing signs of progress in the new garden
It may not look like much but there has been much progress in the new garden. A few shrubs bordering the lawn was all this garden had to offer when I took it over; that and a lot of great new space. This garden sits just outside the adopt–a-plot area. It is deep and wide at one end and following the length of a retaining wall tapers to a thin strip then opens up a bit more at the far end.
I honesty do not know if it is more sun than shade. That is one downside of being a landless gardener- it is hard at times to get a good read on how much sun a garden receives. It doesn’t look like much now but this freshman garden shows promise.
The next step is deciding what to plant in front of the grasses and beyond the weeping cherry tree. I am thinking of simply adding only grasses in front of the already established ones. There is a great deal of wonderful textures, colors and movement offered by grasses and a garden showcasing their design features may be interesting.
