Sunny Weather, Garden Design

The weather this December has been very sunny so a lot of work is getting done.  We just finished the cement block retaining wall.  Now, we can do other garden projects.  On Tuesday, a leaning black locust was cut down.  I asked that they leave long branches and limbs so I could use them for the garden beds.

There is enough wood to do another planter bed, plus the wood chips for the pathways.

The dirt was dug out and it’ll be back-filled into the bed after the wood is screwed together and the wire added.


For the bed, two locust pieces were cut at 9 feet and two pieces were cut at 88 inches for a rectangle.  A few pieces have to be trimmed at the edges, too long.
