When I designed the moon garden, I had to remove an old dilapidated potting bench. The area had a shell path that was now overrun by weeds. There is a natural slope and this space is a transition from the moon garden to the back 5 acres. I run the lawnmower and wheelbarrow through here and need it to stay wide enough for that equipment.
The spigot is on white pvc and has two metal hoses tangled in a mess. It is quite the embarrassing eyesore.
My plan is to dig a hole for the 4×4 post and attach two fancy metal brackets I purchased from amazon so I can hang the hoses.
Once both brackets were attached, I wound the hoses up nice and tidy.
The next step is to tackle all of the weeds.
I decided to dig the weeds out and remove them with the wheelbarrow.
After that, I have to put professional landscape fabric down.
As far as hardscaping, my choices at this point are to lay crushed concrete as a base. Then, I can either put flagstone down with gravel or concrete. I have a ton of gravel left from the RV pad project, but I think I will like the look of concrete better. I just don’t think I have enough flagstone on hand. Well, have to get the crushed concrete so I can pick up a few more pieces of flagstone as well.
Stay tuned for part 2, where I tamp down the soil and lay a flagstone and cement apron.
