I enjoyed the process of creating a herb bed beside my new patio today. Beginning the task, I dug up and removed the grass and roots. Then, I built the border with the same small pavers that built the patio. I stood them on edge and made a slightly elevated wall. The plantings of aloe rosemary and lavender will eventually fill this bed., but, for now, I will be adding some other things to fill the space as the featured plants grow.
The south yard started out quite dismal., the first thing that had to be done was remove the broken down hot tub and relocate the square pavers so I could turn them into a patio. That was accomplished several weeks ago. Although I have not completed the patio, I wanted to get some plants into a bed as soon as possible. So, today, I am planting a rosemary, aloe and lavender plants on the east side of the patio. Of course, there will be AFTER photos when I am done.
