How To Improve A Yard Where Nothing Grows
Pictures of two yards (before and after)Click thumbnail to view full-size
In this first picture shows a back yard that has a huge rock on the property. And since you can't move it, this rock was changed into a waterfall. Adding some plants and garden accessories complements this rock from being nothing to something.
Pond by front steps
Next to these steps was very hard to grow any type of plants. A BBQ was put there for the time being until a pond was put in. Once the pond was put in place, it gave a nice face lift to this front door entrance welcoming people to the home. And with a little patio table just out the door made a nice sitting spot to enjoy and relax.
Corner pond in another yard
Y ou will notice in the fourth picture, you see two plants an impatience and a silver mound. That corner was a dead spot in this back yard. There was a lot of shade there and anything that was planted there did not grow besides those two plants. You couldn't dig because of a wire running underground, so a small raised pond was put there instead and a lower one to give a little waterfall with some plants around it. Lots of limestone rock was used to build a wall and then a liner was put in, lined with a piece of old carpet so the rocks won't pierce the liner. Now the bottom part of the pond is a kidney shaped tub stuck it in the ground.
