Mediterranean Garden Part II

Well this past weekend we worked on our dirt pile. I am very pleased with the progress and I am looking forward to more work on my dream outdoor courtyard. We have a huge front yard that is perfect for creating an outdoor room. After so much research we decided on creating a natural wall with boxwoods. I just love boxwoods. I never realized how luscious and versatile they truly are. And much more cost effective than a stone wall. I was a bit sad at first that we couldn't hire someone to build us a wall but I think I am happy with what we have decided. In the end it will be a much softer and natural look. I have also posted some lovely inspiration via Decorno blogspot.
The start of something beautiful, 28 planted boxwoods all in a row.

Me too. It will take some time to achieve the full wall.
