Our old front garden had curved beds along the front of the house that were smaller than three feet wide in some areas. The new beds are very roomy and have a straight boundary. We also wanted to make our front porch seem larger, so we created two small patios on either side. The photos that follow show how the foundation plantings have changed, since January.
This photo was taken back in January of the area that will become a weeding path.
Over the weekend, my muscle man put in the metal edging. Then the weed block went down on top of the soil.
Next, he placed the pavers down and then filled in the pathway with gravel.
This is my new weeding pathway today.
This is the view from the front door side of the weeding path. The weed block is down.
Next, the pavers are placed on top of the weed block.
Here is how this area looks today. As you can see we now have a bench on the small patio near the front door.
Here is this area back in January.
This is how the patio looks today.
This is how the corner of this bed looked during construction.
Now, the bed is transformed.
This photo was taken in February.
Here we are with the same view today.
