Last years project.

This was last years main project. This space was an extra parking space next to my driveway. My son and I dug out enough of the large gravel to add top soil. I put in the stone walkway with flat stones I had laying around. The rest of the space is grass.I found this bird house at a craft show. It is the perfect focal point for the area.
This is the other side of the driveway. I put this in in the spring. On the left are the remains of the neighbors parking space. I add a 2 brick high wall and then stood a 2x4 on edge right on my property line. The area between the brick and 2x4 is ajuga.
My daughter pointed out that I have a fairie garden like some of you because there are fairies in this garden. Both of these fairies were given to me and it seemed like a good place to put them.
There is a small trellis with a small purple clematis at the far end.
Behind the trellis you can see the hill I just planted last week. All these changes were brought on by neighbor problems but I'm really happy with the changes.

You might have had to do changes because of problems with the neighbour but it sure does look nice:-) I love the way you've placed that bird house on a piece of driftwood, it's gorgeous!! xox

Love the birdhouse very neat.

In the last photo you have one of those little dishes that catches water. I had one like that but it was recently stolen. Oh well it only cost me a dollar at the dollar store so I can't feel too bad about it.
