As a result of some impulse buys (two new bald cypress) our Big Backyard Plan has changed slightly as shown below. We have now created a clearly defined separation between pea gravel and mulch in our planting beds. We have a TON of pea gravel that was a part of the child's play area when we moved in, so we want to recycle it.
So in the colors represent the following: Green Grass, Brown Mulch and Gray Gravel. Currently we have the northwest corner filled with gravel, and rather than relocate it multiple times, we are going to start the bed on the east fence line so we can move the gravel to it's permanent home. Below is it's current location, try not to cringe at the sight.
We have chosen to use a heavy duty steel edging in the hopes that it will withstand the test of time.
