we have a grassy knoll

progress on the front yard garden continues.

we started with two truckloads of topsoil.

after a lot of shoveling, we ended up with a nice flat tabletop.

i started planting things around the edges, but something wasn’t quite right. it was a bit meh. i called around and found a landscape designer who came over for two hours, looked at all the stuff i’d bought on clearance and gave me some advice re: shaping the yard, adding some dimension. i dug some more dirt.

and friday, i hauled a crapload of sod home.

we’re considering sinking a cup or two and using it as a pitch-n-putt.

    I like the shape of the sculpted garden. Definitely a good idea. If I were walking looking at gardens, I would take a picture of that to save as a future idea🙂

    thanks so much! i’m sure it will look much better once everything is planted and mulched🙂
