The beds were defined by the raised roots of the Golden Apple tree (Spondias dulcis) and filled in behind with soil. Ive dumped 7 yards of compost/manure to raise the beds and now added more of a light compost mix to each of the planting holes.During this first stage we have received alot of rain over christmas and new years. This made for a heavy job as inches of mud clung to each shoe adding pounds of weight....not fun...
In the foreground of the pictures above I placed new soil where the new savannah grass lawn will be planted with individual plugs!!!
