I've been creating a new space for an herb garden.
Phase one is complete (removal of sod).
Phase two will be amending the soil. Phase three will consist of sectioning and planting.
I figure I'll have it all worked out just in time to go on vacation and come back to withered plants : ) Actually, I'm kidding. I'm sure the person who'll be taking care of everything will take - well - good care of everything.
You can see the sod that I took up was a combination of dandelion, clover, and wild violet, with a little bit of grass in the mix. The little brown thing sticking out of the ground is our well. We hesitate to put chemicals on the lawn because we figure they'll end up in our water.
As long as the ground cover is green, right?
