Nathan Bernert of Beautifilia came to plant the conifers last Friday and started the initial layout for the new low-maintenance, Japanese style garden. Then, today he was back with the maples and some of the shrubs.
The rest of the plants are on order but I thought I’d share progress!
He is so talented and has such an eye for design!
The second phase entailed planting the conifers.
The first phase was the new grass and digging up the old grass for the new beds.
Every suggestion Nathan has made for design and plant selection has been right in line with what we were dreaming of!
Today, the maples arrived! I’m so happy with the splashes of color!
This little guy happily played for about 20 minutes in the shade while this mama was able to get her hands dirty in the garden for the first time in over a year. It felt so wonderful! I’ve missed the soil under my nails!
Nathan lives on a rock quarry and brought over some boulders straight from his own place…
…then picked up some river rock for the dry rock bed at Mt. Scott Fuel Co.
Then began to spread the river rock for the dry beds…
…and moved some grasses from the front yard to work some blue into the scenery…
It’s really coming together!
More next week!
