|Front garden just after the white rocks were removed.|
We removed the boxwood, brought in a few yards of soil, and mounded it around a central rock path running through the middle of the space. We planted some perennial herbs- rosemary, lavender, sage, oregano, and thyme- as well as a mix native and draught tolerant flowers.
|Work in progress- bark spreading and perennial planting.|

In Spring of 2011, our little herbs and flowers started to fill in. We added a few bright flowers to the mix- purple violas and columbines.
Things filled in even more in Spring of 2012, as we kept adding plants over the course of the summer (hellebores, artichokes, calendula, hollyhocks, and a cherry tree. Many others but I can't remember their names).
