So for a grand total of $48 and Adam's expertise in rock-scaping (courtesy of a summer job building Japanese rock gardens while at university), not to mention our joint free labour shovelling recycling bins full of river wash at a u-shovel place we found close by, we have some new gardens! This is phase 1. Phase 2 will include additional plants, as we salvaged only what was looking promising for the current growing season, and a few accent rocks.
And while we were shovelling mini-shovel after mini-shovel of river wash from the car into the gardens (our recycling bins were filled with stone in our trunk), we couldn't help but think of the "Every day I'm shufflin'" line from LMFAO's Party Rock Anthem.
We're still singing it.
I thought it'd only be nice to share:
