Working On Our Flowerbed

Prettiness looses out to function most the time around here. If you don’t believe me look at our front flowerbed. It has two “butterfly bushes” which I’m not quite what they are but at least theres something in them. Here is the first picture I will call the before pic. I only took a picture of the bushes because I only assumed we would weed under the two bushes, prop up where a dog trampled it, and maybe add some mulch. What did I know but two of my kids got excited and weeded more than just the two bushes!

First they removed the weeds aka bermuda grass. Then she taked up the bent branches by tying them to the poles she drove into ground. After that they got stacks of newspaper and thin cardboard (not thick) & layered it on ground. They misted it with water to keep it from blowing away. They ran out of newspaper for today so here is the next picture of its current state.

She said tonight she will go out to the mulch pile and spread out mulch on this section. Ohh getting excited!! Can’t wait to see how it turns out. Stay tuned!
