We had some plants that needed to be replaced and we really wanted to improve the acccess to our garden via our side yard. The bark was very messy and we were continually tracking it onto the patio, plus it was not very "bare feet friendly", and let me be honest, I am barefoot a lot of the time.
I purchased some cute garden markers for my herbs and I love them! They are silver plated spoons that are etched with the names of my herbs: thyme, rosemary, mint and basil. I found them on Etsy from Monkees always Look. Check out Allison's beautiful items!
With some leftover brick and large rocks that we already had, we formulated a plan. We purchased some pea pebble, a few more stepping stones and plants--some for replacing and some for sprucing up the fence line in the side yard--and got to work. Here is a peek at our finished walkway and stone surround for established plants.
Another view of the side yard and new walkway. We added three star jasmine plants and day lillies, seen on the left and placed our bird bath in the middle of our new plants.
How does your garden grow? Wishing you all days of sunshine and lots of happy gardening!
