Mike was tired of trying to get his mower inside the fence behind the house to mow this little patch of grass. So, when we saw the butterfly garden at Silver Bluff, he was inspired to do something similar here.
Just beginning to take up the sod
All the grass removed (some of it moved to the front yard)
Spreading good black fill dirt on top of the red clay
Working in the good topsoil
Pine needles spread over all
We may not do much more with it until next year - or may start putting things in here as we find them. It is going to be a fun project. Best of all - no mowing!
