The War on Lawn

As noted in prior posts, when we bought our home it had a beautiful yet labor and chemical intensive lawn. We've slowly been changing that, going native. Our latest project was the side garden.

I've focused reporting on the bog, seen below covered with a mulch of pine needles, but the bog is just part of the larger garden.

This image shows the full garden area, almost completely ready for winter. We've still to finish the edging (thanks Terry!). And we'll need to replace some of the leaf mulch which has blown away (thanks Lori!). But otherwise we're just anxiously waiting for spring.

In the mean time we're enjoying watching the wildlife that visits, from the comfort of our living room ...
