New Shade Garden & Pergola

Yes! Finally, our fence & pergola have been built. Here, you can see us laying the pallet floor. Treated plywood has been attached to the tops of all of the pallets. Next, we filled it in with mulch.

 After the patio floor was filled with mulch, we tilled around the sides to remove the grass and turn the soil.
 The tilled sides were then topped with landscaping rocks.
 And then filled with shade plants! We have filled in the area mostly with perennials, but also a few annuals for extra color.
Overtime the plants will fill out/in, and eventually it will probably be an entirely perennial garden.
