What was your source for this garden project? Other
Tell us more about what inspired you. Our side yard on the south side of our house was in need of improvement due to our three labs had destroyed the grass. We were having a Historical Neighborhood Tour on May 4, 2013 and we got started in March. My husband loves DIY projects so we laid a flagstone patio around our Paulownia Tree that was struggling. Hence we added a flower bed on each edge. A year later the area is filled with flowers so that we don't have to mow and I can have my English Garden!
