Would love to have one like this:
|Central Coast Rainwater Conservation|
So, this weekend, we decided to get rid of these huge loropetalum bushes, which take a whole bunch of trimming at least two times a year, to make space for a vegetable garden. You can see that we never got to trimming the tops of them last fall. This part of the yard is the most area in the backyard that receives enough sun for a vegetable garden.
Unfortunately, this area is on a hill since we have a basement.
Taking the bushes out was pretty easy and took less than 30 minutes!
Mr. Fanatic still has to build the side returns for the "boxes" and we need to fill them up with about 3 yards of dirt.
Each of the 4 raised beds is 4ft wide by 10 feet in length.
I am also going to stain the wood so they are a little darker.
It was a lot of work to get this far! Hopefully we can finish up soon because Spring is almost here. It was 81 degrees today!
I can't wait for my backyard to look like this:
It will look like this again in a few more weeks! : )
Thanks for stopping by!
