On May 25 I wrote about the hard work I’ve put into my yard over the years. My LAST project was to put new plants in along the back of my house. I added 900 lbs of top soil to raise the ground level up for proper water drainage away from the foundation. Around each new plant, I used Scotts® special soil for shrubs & trees which includes fertilizer. All the rain we have had has helped enormously!
Here’s what the new plants look like now! The Ligularia haven’t sprouted flowers yet but they are a mid-summer/fall bloomer. I really like the Coppertina Ninebark as it keeps changing colors. It and the Butterfly Bush will eventually grow as tall as the bottom of the windows.
Notice that Murph is “supervising” in the background!
