Conservation Live Joyfully

Our woods project is done!

I’ve been working on this for months in 30-45 minute installments with the girls while Katy was making lotion. 20 bags of garbage, scrap metal, rugs, rusty camping gear, and a discarded porch hauled out and three trees saved from invasive vines, but the real question was what to do with the big pieces of slate, granite, and hundreds of bricks we found all over our hill.

From the beginning, we wanted it to be a “re-arrangement” with nothing new brought in (albeit $5 of landscape fabric), and for it to have a Rivendell feel of ruins in the forest. The girls did their share of the hard work, and the seal of completion has been watching how much they love playing here now.

Here’s some pictures!

    Impressive! Blown away by your initial vision for this spot! That is hard backbreaking work and it came out gorgeoso! This is the perfect time of year to enjoy this little slice of heaven – before the heat and humidity visit!
    Enjoy your little sanctuary! It’s lovely!
