Today was really productive and really hot. I was able to complete another border with clay pipes, around a fruit tree.
I started by digging out the gopher wire and shaping the bed and walkway:
I decided to put locust logs in each of the four corners. Starting in the front which is the lowest point:
After the front, then I added clay pipes to the left side. The walkway needs to be 3 feet wide to fit a wheelbarrow. I was so excited to see what it’d look like with the cedar wood chips that I stopped doing the pipes and layed down the cardboard, bringing in 3 loads of chips:
After adding the chips, I finished adding the clay pipes around the fruit tree bed. I dug out the walkway and added the soil to inside the circle.
More to come…
