Preparations for raised bed installation for a small vegetable garden
The green plastic wheelbarrow belongs to my helper, not me!
Raised beds finished and trellis installed to screen unsightly oil tank
Raised beds complete with vegetables and nasturtiums
This herb garden replaced a grass area just outside the back door to the property. It now provides a nice seating area and convenient access to fresh herbs!
The same herb garden later in the season
This border was created to replace a poorly-situated overgrown Wisteria that had nowhere to go.
Purple-flowered Verbena bonariensis plants provide valuable nectar resources for pollinating insects late in the season.
