a new look

for several years i've been thinking about laying a dry-stacked stone wall on this bank.
it felt like a huge project but ended up being fairly easy and the actual stonework only took several hours.
i already had the stones from other projects and snitched a few from other places around the yard.
i love the transformation and wonder why i didn't do it before!

THE BEFORE

THE AFTER

planting geraniums here would look lovely against the stone.
however, i'm thinking of letting this space empty
and planting ajuga there in the fall, which i already have.

  a tutorial on a dry-stacked wall is in my gardening blog fleur gardens in two posts.

...blessedness!

That looks really good, I love stacked stone it reminds me of the England countyside.

Funny how some projects that seem so hard, actually turn out to be easy, while others give you an unexpected hard time.
What a wonderful garden!

The wall looks amazing! With that pop of color, I think geraniums would look great.

I love it! We've been gathering fieldstone from our acreage for awhile now to use in several projects like yours. I'll have to go check your tutorial out. Thanks for sharing.

Blessings,
