***Official gardening, landscape and yardwork thread***

We had a 2014 gardening thread and another planting trees thread. Figured it would be better just to have a general thread to share knowledge about all things yards.

I've learned stuff about growing things here in the desert from people all around the country. Post pictures and share your knowledge!

Same thing here. Put it away for a couple years, just brought it back out 3-4 years ago.

One of the yards is pretty spongy and based on the thatch layer I think it needs it. The rest I don't think really need it. I don't want to take all the thatch out.

Lettuce and kale made us grow tired of them.

How about yours? Did you let it go to weeds once it warmed up?
I've been what seems like epic busy in the big, revenue generating garden.

We did put up corn last weekend. About 1/3 as much as last year, which was good. We got a little big for our britches last year and didn't get all of last years eaten.

I finally got the hideous assed flowerbeds in front of the house fixed......ish.

When we bought the house in Nov 14 it had these flowerbeds with these goddamned evergreen shitbushes. Dug all that shit out and put rocks in.

Initially, there were 3 trees out front. Each planted in a raised bed. Well, some ****nut that lived here before cut one of the trees down. They went ahead and left the bed. OK whatever. So then they thought, WOW that was a good place for a tree. Let's plant one. So they moved over 5 feet and planted one. Not in a raised bed. Just ****ing there.

So we dug all the shit out of the old bed and moved it around the new one. We took a chance and put some dirt in there. There was a pretty good chance it would suffocate the trunk and it would die. Dug all the compost and bullshit out of there beds and put some different rocks in.

Well shit. I thought I had some pictures. I'll try to grab one in the light. It's not great, but the wife and I are strictly interested in minimal maintenance.

Got the piers set over the weekend and they came and sat the house down yesterday. Happily, there was no damage (none that I've found, anyway) during the 16 mile move and placement. I'm pretty happy with the project at this point, though it's been a lot of work. I have no idea how far along it would be if I was still working full-time.

Having to clear about a quarter acre more back behind so they can get power to the house, but it's one step closer than it was to being home. Beyond adding an 8x12' dropped deck on the front, I'm still mulling the landscaping plan. I'm planning to toss out some rye in the next month to get some cover for the winter, at least.

There is a 10x10 bathroom and a 10x10 utility room on the other side of the wall behind the stove.

Worked this week and last to extend the 5' porch out another 8'. Finished up the skirting this morning and pleased with the results. Will stain to match the house in the Spring. Next up is a planter across the width for lemongrass, etc.
