Calling all blog fans...
...this is the entrance to the garden. Since we've got the flower beds built and filled with a few flowers growing, we feel like this bare spot should have something nicer on it instead of bare ground as an entrance to the garden.
It can't be anything too high up because I do run the wheelbarrow back and forth through it on occasion so it can't impede the tires. Of course there is also foot traffic on a regular basis. In fact, all the back and forth with feet and tires has compacted the ground there to where grass won't even grow. Now that's not to say it wouldn't if I planted some there on purpose, like a couple of squares of sod perhaps? (but then I'd have to use the edger to keep it "trim")
Or maybe roughing it up (to help the new growth) and planting some ground cover of some sort?
I could do gravel but let's face it, half the gravel will be washed out into the yard in the rain where it could become potential glass breaking flying debris from the Zen Machine mower (that might not be so "Zen", ha).
