During the Memorial Day, I decided to do a project in our front yard. I woke up very early and started expanding the garden bed in front of our house. The creeping phlox is taking over the space for the day lilies so I enlarged it.
When my kids woke up, they jumped in and started helping me. We put mulch in top of the garden netting so the weeds will have a hard time coming up.
We bought the mulch on sale, 5 bags for $10 was a steal so we tooc the oppotunity. I used all the fives and still not enough. We went back later that day at Lower's to get some more mulch but they ran out of the stock, ugh. We should have bought ten bags but the space of our CRV's trunk can only accumulate 5 bags. I think I will have to wait till there's a sale again for mulch before I buy again. They are expensive, almost 5 bucks a bag.
I am sure that the day lilies appreciated it too since they can breath freely now without the creeping phlox crawling in them.
I hope that the creeping phlox would grow longer so it can hide the aging look of our concrete wall. I love it when it blooms in Spring.
The day lilies are now blooming, it adds color in our front yard.
This is the other side that I still need to work on. I think I will do this next year or before the end of Fall. I hope I could snag some good deals on materials that I need again.
