Edible Landscaping, Foundation Plantings, Gardening
I rearranged the garden this weekend. Dug out the French sorrel and moved it to the backyard near the fence. Moved the Rhubarb to the front bed. Cleared out two yard-waste bags full of brambles. (I don’t compost thorny things, lol).
Then I planted shrubs and trees. Lots of shrubs and trees. Two cherry plum trees in the front yard. (They are a kind of plum, got the trees as a freebie with my purchase of the other shrubs). Also planted two bayberry bushes, two American Highbush Cranberry bushes, a sand cherry, and a sassafras tree. Still waiting to go into the ground are two nanking cherry bushes, two serviceberry bushes, and two dwarf mulberries. This does not include the trees and bushes that haven’t been delivered yet.
Edible Landscaping, Trees and Shrubs
This is the collection of new trees and shrubs I’m adding to the landscape in 2019. All but the bayberries produce edible fruit and provide food and habitat for birds.
Most are being planted on 4/7/2019, due to beautiful weather.
Edible Landscaping, Foundation Plantings, Gardening, Trees and Shrubs
When we built our house in 2016, I had a “blank canvas” yard to work with for my gardening obsession. While the project was definitely daunting, I was (and still am) ecstatic. Yay, I can put in my DREAM GARDEN!!!!
I am building the front foundation beds as edible and pollinator landscaping, while still keeping it as a (hopefully beautiful) garden. For this I am including ornamental looking veggies, flowers, and herbs in the front part of the deep foundation beds.
