And the work begins.

I think I showed you how John does his layout, with grass killer. And I might add it works well. But when he starts digging the fun begins. The shapes come to life, and we look like a well planned mole is engaged and working randomly throughout the yard. But there really is a plan.

The ground here in South Carolina is red, no it's not red clay, it's ground. But one thing is it's as hard as rock. So the process is slow, when doing it with a small tiller.

But now back to why John has this work the many areas of the yard at the same time. We call it recycling. We move dirt from one side of the yard to the other. From the square area, that will have two chase lounges for sitting in the sun, produced a lot of ground that we moved behind the grill. And so on and so on. The layers going back to the fence are for flowers. On the top row where the brown bark is showing lies the ivy. Oh ya, the hole with the frogs is going to be a pond. With the stream running from behind the sunning area. Wow, it seems so simple when I say it and long in the tooth when written.

More pictures to come. But for this week we are lucky to have my sister and brother-in-law with us and plan to show them the wonders of South Carolina.

God Bless all those who travel through my little world called Balsam Ponds By Design.
