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.

it may look a little sad right now, but I think once I get the rest of it done, including adding more coordinating color, it will look nice. I'm happy with it, at least.

I like it and installing landscaping does not happen overnight. My yard and garden are constantly changing as I change my mind or something outgrows it's allotted space. You'll have lots of fun making your garden look the way you want it.
