My backyard is rough. Not as rough as it was last year, but still not pretty.
I’ve been watering for about a month and I’m starting to think that a lush lawn in the whole backyard may just be a dream.
Some of that green is grass but the majority of it is weeds. This section of lawn straight out from my patio gets the most Henry traffic and I’m having a hard time keeping grass seed on it so I’m thinking I’m not going to fight it any more.
I pinned that image months ago which is strange because usually I’m into orderly, matchy matchy but there’s something about the mix of stones that I really like. Plus, I have bricks, pavers an flagstone already so hopefully this will be a relatively cheap project.
Then I found this site and decided that thyme grown in between the rocks could be pretty perfect!
Plus I think I’m going to add backs to the raised beds I made a few weeks ago and move them into that space.
But really nothing compares to my side yard:
So this weekend I’m putting backs on the planters and filling them with dirt. If I’m feeling motivated I’ll also start laying out a rough plan for the pavers.
