Woodland Wonderland

Over the weekend, my husband & I put in major sweat equity to create a new garden bed that will be a highlight of our backyard Woodland Nature Garden. I have fallen in love with Trees and Shrubs in particular, and it will be exciting to see so many native plants (Serviceberry, Viburnum, Eastern Redbud) providing a proliferate supply of berries for all the birds and wildlife to enjoy! Certain shrubs, like Summersweet, attract hummingbirds, and then the perennials (Hosta, Coral Bells, Japanese Anemone) are great for butterflies. This garden bed on the left side of our property will be vibrant and alive with colorful pretty little things flitting about.



~$150 5 Hosta, 10 Astilbe, 12 Coral Bells (online order from Blue Stone Perennials)
~$40 Rental of Rototiller from Home Depot for 4hrs.
~$35 10-12 bags of Leafgro and Topsoil
~est $400 4 Trees to be purchased
~est $350 8 Shrubs to be purchased
~est $75 5 adit'l Anemones to be purchased
