And then there was mulch ...

Now that the front yard has 3 levels instead of a steep slope, and all the boulders have been placed to create wide spaces for gardening, wandering and stepping between levels from driveway to porch, the mulch is down.

All that's left for us to do is plant ... and we have plenty of perennials to move from our old gardens to these new beds.

Those little sticks in the front are markers for where we're planting two winter berry shrubs in one of the three rain gardens along the driveway.

Oh, and that bit of grass that remains in front will be left in place to filter any runoff until the plants are established, then I'm converting it to ground cover plants. No mowing!
