    Vacation ??? Project

    My wife has been on me for several months now; the ground cover on the side of the house is too overgrown – it has to go. I put it off, as men often do…. But, I took a couple of weeks of “vacation” and she was quite instant that something had to be done. So I borrowed my buddy’s truck and over four days took 5-6 loads of ground cover, weeds, roots, etc. to the dump. Then I put down weed cloth and had several loads of cinders delivered. That was the easy part – she also insisted that my cactus, bromeliads, succulents, etc. be consolidated and moved along the side of the house. While I was at it I did some much needed maintenance (weeding, repotting, etc.). Then to finish it off I added a fountain to the front of the house and had just enough room for a new 4’ x 10’ nepenthes grow bench. I would have liked to have made it taller so I could also hang plants above, but my home owner’s association would not allow it so I built a bit on the short side so they can’t see it from the road….
    I am pleased with the results…..

    She was right, it was a bit (ok very) out of control…
