DH planted about 10 of these on the side of the house. I love the deep wine color.
Yesterdays hard work. Hardscaping is not for the weary. lol About 9 hours of work here.
DH and I started fairly early. It took us nearly an hour to figure out our shape. Then to dig all of the plants out and the area for the stones to be placed. Then we had to have a dry run. Didn't like them up so had to turn them over and while doing that level them out. We were only going to make it 2 high but liked the 3 high better. More blocks, more soil, more work. Then we planted, fertilized and mulched. Shwew. We have sore muscles and a pinkish hue to us after all that sun. lol But it came out nicely. We now have to order pea gravel and edge a sitting area for a table and chairs. Then scrape, sand, prime and paint the rails in the background.
