I have a few existing perennial beds in my yard that really need some TLC. The last couple of years have been quite busy for me and I just haven't had the time to do them justice. As a result, they have a lot of weeds and grasses in them and the existing ornamental plants get lost in the mess. It's difficult to do the clean-up later in the season when things are all the more lush and mature, so I wanted to try to get at least one bed done this spring if I could. The one I chose to tackle first is the middle-sized one, and it had a really bad case of grass and creeping jenny, which is a cute groundcover but is way too invasive for my liking.
I don't know how many times I went to the compost pile and back, but I know that my fitbit racked up way more steps than usual! I feel that I now have more space to plant some new, interesting plants that will fill in some of the spaces.
