Nearly finished front garden

A few plants are still in pots, and the mulch is not even on site, but you can see the new landscaping.  The photo of the pathway shows how I added two drainage pathways, one on either side of the path. Lined with traffic bond and landscape cloth, and finished with small river stones.  The hope is that any water draining from the driveway will take this path and not washout the garden beds.

Garden in progress.

A view of the partially planted garden bed.  The pile of wood chips is what remains of the oak tree that fell.

The giant has been brought down.

This tree was at least 150 years old.  The ground has drained enough from recent rains to finally take it down safely.  It will be a while before it dries up enough to drag out the logs.

Such a shame to lose a grand old oak.
