Stone Work

Stone Work

We are starting two interesting garden projects this week. The first is a series of stone retaining walls up a steep hill, forming a terraced hillside garden. The second project is a spiral shaped stone patio, with lined with a retaining wall on one side and benches on the other. There will also be a natural log retaining wall adjacent to the patio and intensive planting of perennials throughout.

Raised Beds

Raised Beds

Over at freelandia, the digger’s testing and training yard, we spent monday prepping our beds to start planting this weekend . herbs will go in first on the 6th and 7th . i’ve already noticed some of the garlic from last year sprouting and peeking up through the soil ! very exciting . I love growing in raised beds, which is pretty much essential in most Worcester lawns due to lead issues . at freelandia we have several compost piles which provide our beds with the nutrients they need, as well as heat and protection during the cold winter months . We have two large beds which are used yearly and another bed which will be debuting this year . We’re also working on building a raised bed chicken run . Chicken poop is a great fertilizer, especially for tomatoes and growing fancy edible mushrooms . Pictured below is a pyramid raised bed which is not ours but something i would love to build ! it seems it would be a little tricky tending to the center – but i’m sure it’s GORGEOUS once full of vegetables!
