We have finally completed our boulevard strip! It was the only part of our yard that really hadn't been worked on at all since we moved in here, other than an attempt at keeping the weeds beaten back.
A. is "helping". Mostly he enjoyed driving his tractors in the dirt!
We opted to keep it simple and cleared the strip of weeds, and a little excess dirt, then placed a few flagstone stepping stones and filled in the rest with a thick layer of wood chips.
We mostly just tidied up the few plants that were already there, and ran some irrigation lines to them, so they don't like they they are about to die every summer! We did plant a couple of 'carpet roses' on each side of the corner. Here Crandon is sweeping the street, since our tax dollars apparently don't cover that, on our particular street. :-P
Fresh and finished!
Crandon also put in a little retaining wall to create a planter in a bare part of the yard that was too sloped to grow anything. We have it planted with some flowering perennials now too, but I don't have any pictures yet.
Just because. :-)
