Slope 2.0

May 17, 2015

Redoing things that have been done once already, and that recently, is not my favourite sport. I shaped the slope in front of the guest cottage last year, planted some flowers I grabbed from Lidl, and hoped for the best. The result was rather nice in the fall last year.

But the same spot after the winter wasn’t so pretty anymore.

I’m a lazy gardener. I don’t want to weed old grass and other not-so-welcome creatures every spring. Hence, it was time to rethink the approach. I removed all the old crap, spread some landscaping foil, and dumped 6 sacks of tree bark. The Other Half planted few bushes which will cover the whole area in few years. Hopefully, no maintenance required beyond watering the young bushes in the first weeks.
