In this view, I see I need to move the rhodo and reposition the rocks to create a smoother transition from one side of the yard to the next.
I like the natural element the granite rocks adds to the garden. I didn't want any hard edges, so the rocks have been re-worked with lots of graceful curves and positioned to flow from one rock to the next. It was not as easy as it may seem to match up the rocks, I sure got a workout that day.
Ahh the sight of the new arbours are a beautiful thing.
The additional garden beds here will be planted with roses and other perennials.
The roses have been transplanted, the next project will be to plant up the garden and remove the rest of the grass, to be replaced with 3/4 inch crushed granite. In a perfect world I would kept the grass as it looks great against the granite rocks but the continued damage done by my dog is just to much for this little strip to handle.
