Who's idea was this?

When looking at blueprints there is always an area you feel unsure about.  Often we look over it, but when the house is built it sticks out.  When we walked out the front door, this area gave us a chill. 
February 2013
Why didn't the just extend the deck, or maybe just build it up with soil.  Oh well, it was ours now.  They had planted a bush, however it never grew.  We took out that bush and the ones in front of it. 

What we decided to do is put in levels with plants that didn't need much attention. 

This is what we started with  it looked better without the bush and debris.

This is what we decided to do. The retaining wall material was taken from all parts of our yard.  Didn't like the color but was usable for this wall.

We planted mongo in the back row. These need very little work and stay green all year round.  Annuals in the front two rows.  We will plant pansies and other winter plants to continue color all year round.

This was truely a problem area and we made it beautiful.  This is what keeps you going.  Turning something into something special. 

I hoped you enjoyed the story
God Bless those who travel through my little blog.
