My first gardening experience.

Post  tazman7 on 5/18/2011, 7:16 am

I decided that since we purchased our own home and have a little over a half an acre of yard, that I wanted to give gardening a go. I read Mels book and have been working on building the garden for about the past three weeks (i'm a perfectionist).

Here are the pictures.

I will write more later, as I am off to work.

There's nothing wrong with being a perfectionist! Right??? OMG... I hope that's right....

Anyway, your new garden looks PERFECT! Smile What did you use for fencing? Can you step over it?

Oh... and congrats on your new home. It looks beautiful.

The fencing that I used is called rabbit guard. I got it at Menards. It is 24" high so it can be easily stepped over. I was going to build more of a permanent fence but I didnt want to spend that much money right now, but it turned out nice.

Thank you!
