we're so close to being done!
this garden has truly been a family project. from cutting the wood, to filling the beds with dirt, to planting the seeds.
tomorrow we will be installing the fencing that will prevent the little critters from getting in.
when we first looked into a design that would emulate my inspiration picture, we realized it would take forever to build! the 8 foot fence height was mandatory. i loved the dramatic feel of it AND it is high enough to deter the deer.
my dad came up with this design that was a bit more simple yet still very aesthetically pleasing to the eye.
you can see the beginning of the process here.
this little guy would find water in a desert! he always finds the puddles....
and as you can see here deanie was having quite the time in front of the camera while my dad and husband were hard at work!
these kids are hard workers!
my favorite part of this whole project is that my children are making memories with their opa. i know they will always remember opa building the garden.
it's all coming together!
i'm so happy with the way the gates turned out. we put two swinging gates in the front end of the garden and two in the back. for safety reasons.
we have twelve 4x12' raised beds. i will do a more detailed post on that very easy process.
and that's it for now. tomorrow it will be done. well the "structure" of it will be done. i will forever be working on the interior grass, adding flowers and making it look lovely.
