The wet Summer of 2019. You get the odd dry day, interspersed with lots of wet days. So whenever it has been dry I have been trying to make an extra effort to get outside and get some gardening done. Wednesday just happened to be a dry day and I was home, so in and out of the garden I was all day.
One job I did get done was get an edge dug around the tree closest to the road on the front, as it had merged into the grass. This was the before:
This was the after.
We have two trees in the front garden, this being the other garden bed. I got that dug over earlier in the week.
From these photos the grass doesn't look too bad, but believe me when I say that it is more weeds than grass. Luckily for us the weeds are green 😉
I also dug up a bag of weeds using my handy dandy dandelion/weed extractor that I blogged about here. I also cut the back grass, and the side of the house grass (the one we re-sodded) and "whipper-snipped" all the edges. So all in all a productive day gardening wise.
My goal is to try and get one area a week cleaned up.......figures crossed I succeed. How is your garden doing?
