When the weather warms, I spend most lunch hours walking. My office is surrounded by beautiful tree-lined sidewalks and homes with beautiful landscaping. I take photos of landscaping that inspires me, piques my interest, and ideas that I can replicate.
I have often considered having a raised bed for flowers or vegetables. One day I saw a raised bed created by paving stones. All of a sudden, the spare stones I have stored inside and outside my shed came to mind. THAT'S what I could do! The cost of the project would be reduced because I already have the materials. I would only have the cost of the soil to fill the stone bed as well as the plants, seeds, and blossoms I choose to fill it.
