What do boxwood and the old chimney have in common? Well, they’re both featured in my new front-entry boxwood garden. We saved the stones from the old, non-working fireplace and used them to edge the new boxwood garden.
The original plan was to mass plant boxwood Belgian style–but we loved the moss under the cherry tree so much that we decided to work with it. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it! The large rocks were already in place and covered with beautiful moss. A few ferns will be added to the empty spaces and the moss will be encouraged to fill in with the help of a little Miracle Grow. We have a huge pile of stone leftover—next project, please!
By the way, those lilacs are getting a new home soon—think pergola!
