Under that snow out there – and all the way around the house – are all the gardens I can possibly manage! A few years ago, we put in permanent edging to curb my urge to add new beds all the time. Last year I spent the pandemic summer thinning and taming the two largest beds in back to make maintenance easier. This year the front beds will get the same attention. I even bring in teen helpers to do the leaf removal, dig old shrubs out & mulch, and adult "share the plant" helpers to thin & transplant the hundred of perennials.
@sueinmn I love beautiful yards with gardens, I just wish I didn't hate doing that stuff myself! I guess I'm sort of like Jake. He likes to eat but not to cook. I like to admire pretty yards, but not to maintain them. When ours is looking good out back I sit on my screened-in porch and enjoy it. I am really not much of an outdoor person.
