July 25, 2016 Expansion of Lawn Beds

July 25, 2016 Expansion of Lawn Beds

The view from the window at the end of July shows the expansion two of the Lawn Beds. We wanted to plant Calycanthus in the bed on the left along with two geums , and the low growing sumac on the right.

At the end of August, with only the merest rain shower, the only change, besides the increasing drying of leaves on the horse chestnut, is an attempt to refine the borders and do a little more mulching. More refinements clearly needed. I did also bring the pots of bright red geraniums to the back garden because as welcoming as they were in front of the house they were not thriving. The garden in front of the house gets a lot of  shade.

With luck there will be more bed expansion and plantings before the snow flies.

  • I so enjoy these comparison posts–even when there isn’t much change because of minimal precipitation. Soon your new beds will be full and lush, and we’ll be amazed at the transformation! Sounds like you have big plans for further upgrades!
