Why I Love What I Do — 2

in 2013 I built this perennial garden on a woodchip base. Here it is in 2017.
2013. At this point we have laid down some wood chips and are planning how we will fill in with plants.
2017. You can see we managed to pretty well fill in all the blanks, and then some.
2013 — Left — how this section in front of the bow window looked when I started. Right — this is how the side area looked pre getting fixed.
2017-Left — this is how the side area looks now. Right, this is how the bed in front of the bow window looks now.
2013. Top left shows several scruffy shrubs in front of the bow window. Top and bottom right shows those shrubs out and ground ready
One thing that happened was that the client got her front entrance pathway re-done, and it really sets off the garden, in my opinion.
2013-This side of the house ws a challenge, and was filled with Goutweed.
2016. It took many hours, but we pulled and dug out the Goutweed and replaced with various shade tolerant perennials. The neighbours’ Rudbeckia daisies self-seed generously but we don’t mind.
