What garden project is on your 'must do' list this spring?
None of these. I re-worked a few things in the landscape last year. Already have a veggie garden and raised beds. Will probably replace a couple of pillows in the patio/back porch seating. A couple are beginning to look a little faded. Other than weeding & replacing cardboard & mulch, which I've been working on the last couple of weeks, it's just routine maintenance for me.
I hope to have the front yard re-landscaped, the deck replaced, and a concrete driveway poured.
I am trying to turn the field by my back yard into a flower field. Starting with daylilies and anything else that I can find.
My family bought a house that I've moved into on 1/2 acre. So much to do and I'm already behind. I need to dig a pond for summer irrigation, rip out the front lawn and amend the soil so that cut sweet pea, stocks, sunflowers, etc can be planted. Removal of blackberry has been a primary focus. Build my little greenhouse on the back porch. Not enough time in the day.
Veggie garden, preferably on time this year.
I didn't choose the "...finally getting a veggie garden" option, because I've been planting one for a few years now, but I don't usually get my plants/seeds in the ground in accordance with the recommended dates for my area. Since we have a very long growing season, 2 back to back summer seasons really, planting late still works for me, but there are numerous benefits to getting started early.
Building raised beds is an ongoing project I slowly but steadily squeeze in all year long between weeding, planting and life's chaos in general. Here are two I built with my own 2 little hands. Hey...they work. I said I could make them, not that I was a stone mason o.k.! :D
Also have been getting into putting plants in decorative pots in the yard. This way there is some additional visual interest and varying degrees of size, texture and height in the yard. Added bonus is that if the plant isn't faring well in its present location its pot can either be moved or the plant removed and planted elsewhere in the yard.
We inherited our old, ugly and improperly installed patio when we moved in to our near century old home 26 years ago. The patio is made with 8" x 16" concrete pavers that are crumbling, so we are in desperate need of an entirely new patio. Water drainage has nowhere to go but down below grade, so a drain in the center of the patio which leads to a dry well is in order. Old house, back door threshold about 2 inches above grade, gotta think outside the box!
What great projects!
Me, it's just :
Pampas Grass removal (turns out this is actually the worst)..
Adding agility training equipment in the backyard for my grand-daughter's Aussie puppy. Trying to change up the landscape again to accommodate another (very active) dog who has already chewed a beloved hydrangea to the ground. ; (
My wife found a cast table and 2 chairs - so plastic went to curb ,
neighbor saw it and all 3 pieces went to her back yard .
