Need More Room

I'm dreaming of cutting some more flower beds out of the center of the yard.  This I haven't mentioned to anyone else yet.  I'd love to have the back yard just paths through flowers and vegetables.  We do have plans to make a brick sidewalk from where you see the lattice on to the house, brick's a lot of fun to work with, HARD WORK!, but fun.  Then I'd like to make a stone path leading off of that to my cottage, that should cut the yard up so that I can visualize more beds.  What do you think?  Diane

Hmmm, sounds interesting...where would you put the flowers.... add them to the back corner?
I am sure whatever you do it will look awesome!

I have to catch up on your posts! My back kind of went out...the other day,yuck!

I love your idea, it will look like an English garden but your garden is soooo beautiful now.
I know your putting hours of hardwork and it shows!!!

My husband would say: Go for it... The less grass he has to grow, the happier he is!!!!!!

I've seen alot of yards with stepping stone (or sand) paths around the garden...

I say--if you want to do it, do it!!!! Your butterflies and bees and birdies would love it...

Hugs,
Betsy

Your yard is going to be perfectly beautiful! I have had the same dream, so little grass to cut, and a wonderful peaceful haven. It won't happen here though, Ken won't have anything to do with gardening. And I can't do it alone! I'll live vicariously through yours Diane!

Love the idea. I had a house in Lafayette, CO that had no grass. Just meandering gravel paths & garden beds. Loved it!

Have a great day, Diane!

Dine I think you already know what I think! Of course I say go for it. Making a new bed is always hard work...but it is the best kind of hard work. Your garden is beautiful!!!
