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



The Garden Plan: We envisioned a beautiful yard that would draw the attention of all the neighbors, not just the kids. First on the plan was the regrading of the yard and installation of a gentler and kinder retaining wall fashioned from recycled concrete from Bourget Brothers Building Supply. The wall was only a few courses tall and flowed into the new entry steps and generous walkway made from the same material. An alee of Pear trees was put in to punctuate the new walkway and grow into an entry tunnel in the future. The old walkway was about 2 feet wide and you had to line up to enter the house!



(New steps and an alee of pear trees to highlight the new walkway)

(Now that the sprinklers for the lawn are in, we need to fertilize and lay the new sod)
