It’s almost April and I probably should have been thinking about this much earlier (actually the thinking was being done…just not the action!), but I really want to put in a garden this year.
We bought our house in the Fall of 2006. It was built in 1915 ~ we have a very large front & side yard, but a small back yard. There is a covered patio and an area that was full of rocks. We removed the rocks last summer and I started prepping the dirt for sod. My thinking at the time was for half sod and half raised garden. But then I started thinking (very bad thing for me sometimes)…we have a crap-full of grass out front, maybe I’ll lay pavers and still put in my raised garden. And along the side fence (next to the church) ~ plant berry bushes!
(yes…I know I can rent a tiller ~ but I really need the exercise!)
My garden at the old house looked something like this ~
I don’t want the box so big this time…thinking of at least two long thinner ones, with room to walk in between the two.
These are pretty cool…only not squared ~
So I guess the question is ~ to sod or to pave? What are your thoughts?
