Part #1 – Geophytes for fun!


Succulents!

I can’t kick this sickness… but I’ve gotta get my hands dirty.  So I focused my energy for the day on a little section of the yard that usually goes unnoticed.  The Pool is arguably the main attraction in our back yard.  It needs a lot of work still, but being large, gleaming and bright blue it stands to reason that its the first thing you notice.


However the little plot of land behind the diving board doesn’t get a lot of love.  This weekend I changed that… this will be a 3 part series.  When we unveil the final photos, you wont believe your eyes!

First step – Succulents!

I planted – Compact jade,  Angelina stone orpine,  Chinese sedum,  Sedum acre gold moss,  Sedum brown bean,  and some Ice plant I had left over from a few days ago.
With the fat plants water retaining abilities and  the amount of water my kids splash out of the pool I’m hoping it will make up for the fact that I don’t have a sprinkler dedicated to them.

Total Cost:  $29.28 + Tax

Next – Part #2 – Natures Flooring!

UPDATE:  We picked up a JEEP full of free river rock I found on craigslist this morning and just look at our little garden now!
