This is the first post and an introduction to my project. Our home resides on one acre. This is by far the largest gardening project I have undertaken and I’m expecting it to take years to complete. I have a rough layout for the south garden and intend to keep the front and side area desert with native south west plants with minimal irrigation. The south (rear) garden will be home to a wider range of plants, vegetable area and hopefully a perennial meadow.
The house following remodel.
There is still a large amount of work to be finished on eastern, northern and western sides, There’s plenty of rock to be removed, Apache Pink, a River Rock berm and Lava Rock boulders and some grading to be done before more plants are put in and a fresh covering of rock. This site will be following the development of a garden, and keep track of each stage as it’s undertaken. I have a lot of plans for various projects that will be put in place in the garden, furniture, benches, fire pits, planters and some other concrete and wood work.
