The front garden – weeding

With the path now finished, I am faced with this mess of weeds and sand. 

 

After a good hour of digging and weeding it is now a bit closer to being ready for some plants. 

I will have to figure out a path of some sort for later on to reach the middle mandarin tree for harvesting. 

I am planning on this garden being a cottage garden with lots of perennial flowering plants.  I think alyssum along the path would be a good choice for edging as it is as tough as boots.  I will shuffle a few of the other plants around as they will no longer fit where they are or will be crowded out. 

Oh, and some mulch too!

  1. Chamomile should do well too. It’s meant to deter flies and is fragrant when crushed underfoot.

    I love the cottage feel to your garden. Very pretty, but also very useful.

  2. thanks Chris Chamomile is a great idea, I have an apple scented one I will be planting out the back, but I might try to get afew more plants or some seeds. Thanks! ~Emily

  3. Nicole, thanks for the suggestions. I am really liking the idea of wood mulch or a hard path of stepping stones, hmm still pondering this one 😉 ~Emily
