With fall here I’m prepping my gardens for the winter. This was last year’s DIY fall project with some pictures from this summer. The area looks bright since the main tree on the right drops its leaves early, but this is a shade garden as soon at the leaves return in the spring : )
We cleared the grass and added some slate and gray stones to create a small nook by the fence and a path to the front yard. Using the pavers helped keep the stones in place and create a short garden wall.
In both gardens there are evergreen grasses and periwinkles. In the spring the garden was filled with little purple flowers. For the summer I line the edges with coleus and caladiums for a pop of color.
