Sunday we bought 15 bags of on sale mulch at Walmart, as well as 15 bags of composted manure to fill a trough that we emptied and moved from another part of the yard. I loaded the soil in it into other troughs and then Dave set up the support blocks up against the fence and we lifted the empty trough together (ugh!) and placed it in its new site.
That opens up the space in the yard for other stuff. What other stuff? We haven't decided, but I am thinking of a fire pit, or another trough to use as a pretend hot tub. ha! I do miss my hot tub.
The contrasting red mulch helps us see where we have put it. That green disc in the ground is a buried gas tank for the indoor gas fire place. Raising the mulch layer around it will prevent us from constantly tripping on it.
Last years fish pond will now become a new flower bed. I am waiting to see something happening with the five figs. I have hope.
