One of those Gravel filled days...

I don't know were all the gravel I spread around last time went, actually , I do know , those two watching in the back ground , they scatter it out of the paths into the plants . So now all the paths are bare and the plants are drowning in gravel. 

Now  this  area  needed a good layer of gravel , under the shorn Acassia .  With all that messy undergrowth gone ,  a more open space with  new low growing planting .

The sea of Sedum  got a thick sprinkling of gravel between the stepping stones , for easier wheel barrow pushing.    And so ended the  day , with still half the pile left.

  1. It's mulching, whatever you do it with. And it's my specialty. So I'd even help if you still have some on Friday!

  2. Oh, I don't envy you. Hauling gravel is so much harder than hauling compost or wood chips. But it looks so good!

  3. I don't remember the before from the plant exchange, but the after with those low plantings under the Acacia looks great. Gravel (any kind of mulch really) just makes things look so tidy.

  4. I still can't get over that huge acacia; it's so beautiful! I also can't believe that you're blaming those two adorable observers for scattering your gravel. They could never do anything wrong! It must be monsters that come in the night to mess up your paths.

  5. Those guys ARE looking pretty guilty in that first photo...or are they simply plotting their next romp in all that fresh gravel?
