Finally after writing posts about what I want to do in the backyard.. I will finally have the funds to do so!
Step 1: rototill... I hate to do it cause it will compact the soil but my plan is to till up the grass, rake it clean (compost the good stuff of course), and then go back through by hand to loosen up the soil...
Step 2: Build the beds.. 4 pieces of wood screwed together
Step 3: Fill with compost...
Step 4: Plant all the lovely seedlings I'm getting ready to start within the next 2 weeks
I will be making my picnic area surrounded with lovely flowers : )
It will also give my the funds to build those cowpea cages I want ... maybe even a homemade pond with some fish and water flowers
Finally the garden plans will be able to come to life!
