Violet's Hot Garden: progress & stock tank planter
Here's a pic of my latest garden project, my stock tank planter. Right now it has a "temporary" juniper in there for winter color-- I'll need to build up a proper base before I really plant it.
The colors are chosen to reflect the colors of the rocks and the twilight blue/purple. Kind of funky, but that's my style!
You can see the area in the back which I planted with a cover crop of winter rye and hairy vetch (which didn't sprout well) to stabilize and build up the soil until I can plant it in the spring. Yuccas, ocotillos, & agaves are going to go behind there in the right hand corner. And rocks. A palo verde tree will go on the left.
Next will be preparing some areas for pavers and gravel.
