Hi Chris, I was busy again this weekend – I don’t know where this energy comes from!! The bags of compost arrived from Nonke – all 30 of them!! They are super heavy and I had to scheme how I was going to bring each one to the back garden. I worked out a 3-phase plan to get each bag into the wheel barrow, whew! I managed to get 15 bags (one at a time!) to the back. I filled the raised beds.

30 bags of compost!

4 bags per raised bed

I also created a work of art with the plants I bought at the Nonke Plants Open Day. Here are the lavender – yes, more lavender – and the ground-cover grasses.

Lavendula stoechas-Lavender Lace

Lavendula-Raspberry Ruffles and Festuca glauca

Now the fun starts!! I am glad the weather played along. I have to say, that this was really hard work and my body was full of aches and pains the next morning.

Now let’s begin

Let’s start small

Nod of approval

Starting with a pathway

Keep it straight!

First landscape design complete!

Looks fabulous!

I’m super happy with results!

I hope you enjoyed and approve of my first designed pathway. I like doing small projects now so I can see my garden develop. Next will be the lawn patch. I’ll keep you posted! I can’t wait for next weekend!

I must keep the chickens off the pathway – I have a feather duster stuck in the ground next to it!  So amazing how great this works!

Have a great week!
