Getting rid of Grass Before & After….

When you have only two pennies left in the world, buy a loaf of bread with one, and a lily with the other. ~Chinese Proverb

From day one I hated  having grass in the garden area. The upkeep is time consuming and it never really had that “manicured” look to me.

We have come a long way from here:

After a lot of work on my husbands part we were here:

grass=Messy, messy, messy!

 

Ok so we took the plunge and started on a Saturday morning after the Tenn. River Rock was delivered

Than the weed barrier was laid on top of the grass, that was cut ultra short.

Figuring out where to place the pavers was a bit tricky and we took my natural stride into consideration and placed them accordingly, so it is easy for both me and my husband to walk on them with ease.

Now the hard part….Bucket by bucket we added the river rock to the garden, this step went well into Sunday…But when we finally finished this is what we had. We just love the effect!

More to come…..
