So here is our gate area. We use to open the gate out or in. Now we can only open inwards. Plus because of the silt, the weeds are starting to move in.
We purchased railroad ties for 10 bucks each, and buried them in the ground, then removed the excess soil.
Now the front door. Yes I said the "front door". I never finish one thing all the way. But the weather was so nice I decided to take advantage of the warm sunshine. Our door has suffered a bit from humidity and doggy toenail graffiti. Notice our fancy saw-horses? I lightly sanded the door and added a fresh coat of sealer. Then placed it in the power dryer to speed up the process.
Then back to the garden! Of course a little Frisbee time with Pickles first.
Next we added our weed barrier (free cardboard), and topped it with some crushed limestone. We love the way it turned out. This should help divert any rushing water. One project crossed off of the list. And when the garden starts getting busy, we won't be bugged by a weed-infested garden entryway.
Oh, I did get the front door hung back up. Only problem is, I only got to do one side. That's the way I roll!
