carolyncuttings asked:
well that looks like cheating to me! too many stones, easy peasy, hard work cums with weeding!
MarinaL answered:
haha, no cheating I bought the house with all the stones and believe me I have a lot of weeding but constant effort makes it looks neat!
Gabbie asked:
Beautiful, how did you do it all?
MarinaL answered:
Thanks Gabbie! I spent a lot of time in front thinking of ideas and what I wanted to see, I woulb make notes as ideas come to mind. Eventually I got my dad and a bunch of friend to help me dig and remove an old tree stump. Did an outline and started planting after many trips to the garden center to figure out what will work in my space. It took 2 years to fully complete with lots of love and hard labour.
Montana Leslie asked:
beautiful! all my neighbors ask where my weeds are? I tell them what my dad always used to tell me," It looks pretty good to the blind man riding by on his fast horse!"
MarinaL answered:
Yep, that's right! Believe me, there is lots of weeds there but I don't set a time or date to pull weeds I pull them everytime I walk by.
