The GLRP, 11/07/16

Back at work on the Great Labyrinth Reclamation Project, this time on the southwest corner.

You may recall that the new fence, in cutting a straight line from one corner to the other, cut off some of my “landscaping” at the far end of the labyrinth, and so I am having to revamp that corner.  It’s always been problematic in that the bricks that I used to create a border were continually being covered over by soil washing down the little slope there.

So my plan is to build a small wall and fill that in with dirt.

Here’s the bottom layer of wall:

And more:

I didn’t buy quite enough blocks, so back to Home Depot today.  I will also buy the fill dirt to put in there and then seed it.

Meanwhile that back corner will become a nook of some kind:

I already had two large pieces of fieldstone, so I went ahead and put them down.  I’ll get to this area later this week.

  1. As long as you’re doing some reclaiming, you know what the labyrinth needs? Some Lisa Frank influence. I don’t mean prisms hanging from the branches to rainbow-fy everything. Just one or two purple kittens. Or maybe a discreet unicorn and some glitter.

  2. Wow, I had no idea you were in this bad a shape! I feel guilty in letting you down like this. Please come down on Friday and I promise I’ll make it all better.
