The weather has warmed up a bit, just enough to get my gardening juices flowing. I have a garden in our current home, already to plant, but of course I am thinking ahead to the new house. We won't have a back yard AT ALL. And the front yard is teeny, but we won't let that stop us. After visiting the property again today we decided to have a two raised bed gardens in the front, on either side of the stairs and front side walk. The space is only about 8x10' on either side. The existing earth is total hard clay, as we have had everywhere here in Tennessee, so raised beds are the only way to go.
We will again use concrete blocks. Dave wants to paint them to match the brick trim on the house and I think that is a great idea. Two courses of the blocks stand 16" high, which is pretty good for our coral bark maple and the pink dogwood we intend to buy. And of course we plan to have flowers galore. So happy!
