Our house is at the bottom of a slope, and we have a rock wall all along one side of our property.
I hate it.
I think it's ugly and cheesy and 1970s-looking, in a bad way. It's like the split-level house of landscaping.
Sorry if you live in a split-level house. Some of my best friends live in split-level houses and all that. Actually, I'm pretty sure my best friend does live in a split-level house. But... they're not my bag. And probably for most of us, there's some aspect of our house or yard that we don't dig so much. The question is how to work around it, how to make the best of it.
So one day I saw this image:
And I thought, hmm...could I?
So I gathered some supplies.
And I gave it a try.
The bulbs are under the areas with darker soil, a compost-topsoil blend that I put on top of what was already there. I'm not confident that I really buried the bulbs as deep as the package instructions said, but...if daffodils can grow in the amount of dirt on top of a Cornish rock wall, maybe it will work out.
I'll keep you posted. But I feel better already.
