It's been too beautiful a day today to do only indoor chores. So, while the boys played outside, I decided to tackle my little semi-circle rock-framed garden I've neglected the last couple years.
These pictures are from after I've pulled & dug & yanked weeds, debris, grass, & ivy vines that had overtaken my little flower garden area. I've been moving the rocks to clear the stuff growing up in between. I don't have a before picture to show you. But, trust me, even though I'm not finished yet this is 90% better than it was.
I used to have sage & columbine planted here. I'm not sure if I dug them out along with the grass & weeds. I guess we shall see soon.
What's a good way to keep ivy under control? It's planted in a section of the yard above, but it always creeps down. You can't see behind the vines, but there is actually a rock wall there that is about to crumble down because of the vines growing in the cracks and crevices.
I'll be sure to show an after once I get the rest of this jungle under control.
