When we moved into our home in November of 2004 the only garden beds were foundation plantings. The present gardens began in 2005 with a modest creation of a garden bed adjacent to our driveway and the road.
Over the years I’ve removed poison ivy vines, raspberry canes and an assortment of weeds to create garden rooms.
The beds were originally filled with both divided perennials brought from our old home and store-bought annuals.
I must admit was not expecting the proliferation of plants as annuals reseeded and perennials jumped their beds.
I have come to realize that because of their continued proliferation
I have been able to increase the area of the gardens without having to continually oversee established beds.
Minimal weeding in spring is all that is needed which leaves time to enjoy the gardens!
