Thanks for looking
Step 1: Location, Location, Location
So here was my dilemma. I needed to do something with that back corner but it also had a pile of dirt and rock in the area. the previous owners had laid concrete and piled the excess dirt in the corner and throughout the yard.
As you will see in the pictures I have some crazy pumpkin plants all over the yard. The kids planted the pumpkin seeds from the previous Halloweenâs pumpkin carving. What do you know they grew and grew, but alas no pumpkins. We didn't have any bees to pollinate the flowers and manual pollination wasn't working either. So the lawn mower came out and finished them off.
Once again inspiration struck me, that and www.gardenerschoice.com had some huge tomato plants they were selling at great prices. So here it was a place to raise some "Mators". It has to look nice though.
The previous owners had already put a small raised area lining the back wall of the yard and my wife decided that we should go with the same castle stones they used, naturally I agreed.
Time to plan and gather materials.
