What I was referring to here, Ray, was what I call infrastucture.
Placement of trees, retaining walls, flagstone pathways, edging, things
of that nature. Seems I've done too much retrofitting and not enough
enjoying. I'm gaining on it, mind you, but it's a constant struggle
because I am not gifted an talented in landscape or perennial garden design.
Every inch forward that I move has taken me a yard's worth of effort.
Oh how I do enjoy the spring and the areas that have now begun
to speak to me, saying "I'm a permanent arrangement--you'll like me just
the way I am for a very long time". And all this on just
a little city lot! What if I had a LOT of space to rearrange
like some of these folks here.
As for the top dressing, if you pull the weeds for a while, eventually
you'll get ahead of it. Just don't disturb the soil with a hoe or
you'll never get to go to bed at night from all of the hoeing you'll have
to keep doing. Dan Nelson reminded us of that and it's so very
Hosta la Vista!
