Patio Bed Clean-up

Patio Bed Clean-up
Originally uploaded by dewelch.
I took a few minutes the other day to start the clean-up on the patio bed which holds the agapanthus, some nadina and a carpet of, now dormant, bulbs.

I have been lax about leaf clean up the last year and was amazed at how thick the leaves were in this bed. It sits directly beneath a locust, my favorite Japanese Maple and a large eucalyptus, so it collects leaf mold like crazy.

It is a bit hard to see in the photo, but the pile of stuff in the foreground is from only 1/2 of the bed. The final pile is, at least, twice as large.

Most of this will hit the compost heap, but the rest will go in our green gardening beds for the city to cart away.

Just think, I have another 7 or 8 beds that need the same attention.

Oh well!
