6/1/08 on The Garden Police: "Do It for the Kids"


Garden Police Solution:
Michael and I put Chris and Amy to work right away removing the dead lawn and plants with the aid of a rototilling machine. The American Soil Company brought us 6 yards of 50/50 amended soil to mix in with the native soil to improve the quality of the soil for planting. The pseudo retaining wall and shoddy planters were the next to go. The demolition of retaining wall brought to light just how fragile the stone wall was without rebar to reinforce it properly. The planter next to the front entry had to go because it cut short the area we wanted to use to install a new front walkway. Gabriel Rodriguez Landscaping in North Hills, California helped us again as the backbone of the Green Team Squad and we needed every able body for this project!


(The Workman Family- guilty as charged for "plant-slaughter!")


(Time to re grade the slope now that the retaining wall is gone.)


(A gentle down slope replaces the old straight cut.)
