It was too hot yesterday to do anything in the garden, so tonight after the weather cooled down a bit, I decided to put the carpet rose in the planter. Unfortunately, I didn’t get any good “before” pictures of the exact planter I worked on. I do have this one from a month ago.
See the arrow? It’s pointing to the planter I just redid. A few days ago, I dug up that massive dandelion & pulled out as much bermuda grass that I could.
Today, I finished pulling up the bermuda grass, tossed out rocks, dug a big hole, rolled out the weed blocker, planted the rose & covered the rest of the planter with humus. The entire project took just over an hour. I’d say it looks pretty fantastic now. 🙂
Project cost breakdown:
1/2 roll DuPont organic weed control $5.77 ($11.54 for entire roll)
1 1/3 bags of humus $5.20 ($3.90 per bag)
1 carpet rose $9
Total cost of project: $19.97
Thanks for reading!
