Love that lawn…….gone.
In the Beginning…..
Aug. 2008-A new home: look at all that beautiful brown lawn!
Easy to back the U-Haul up to the house and unpack...
Phase 1 Lawn Conversion – Spring 1999:
Bring in the soil while access is easy.....
Because once the new fence is up, there's no more 4-wheeling.
The 1st garden inhabitant: a relocated rosemary.
Nice to have more privacy, but still a lot of lawn to mow, you think?
Phase 2 Lawn Conversion & Garden Expansion – August 2004:
Too much lawn! 12 cu. yards of Ferti-Loam delivered for rototilling once the fence is moved forward.
Preparing fence for move 20 feet forward; grapevine must go.
Garage-side fence before move
Fence panels down
Removing the posts...
The magic genie finishing up fence alignment
New beds formed the next spring-2005
Squash, basil, lavender, euphorbia, jasmine - 2008
This brings you up to the “Phase 3” communal garden project documented in blog entries beginning in May 2009……
