procedures for working on landscape project
Basically, I plan to have some flower beds where surrounded by gravel. Since I need to till the soil and add amendments to it for the flower beds and lay down the landscape fabric, compact sub-base, and top dress gravels, I am not sure what is the right procedure to do it.
Do I till the flower beds first, then lay down the fabric to fit the contour around the beds for the gravel areas, compact sub-base, top dress gravels, and finally plant flowers and shrubs? Or do I lay down the fabric in all the areas, compact sub-base, top dress gravels, cut the flower beds out, and finally plant flowers?
P.S. Since the soil in Georgia consists mostly red clay, I am afraid tilling the soil after finishing everything else would make the red clay stain the surrounded areas.
