Friends, I have a problem. I have no idea what to do with this area of the yard. It's rather large - I'm going to guess about 12' wide x 20' deep? Some of the plants in this area were established by Mom. When she was alive, there was a large strawberry patch in the foreground. The summer she was sick, one of my aunts and her daughter-in-law came and took a lot of the strawberry plants (I am sure that was done with my mom's blessing, but it left a large hole in the garden). There were a few stragglers left, and I gave them to friends the next summer. I'm not sure strawberries would have done well with Gabe and Archie tromping through them anyway.
Since then, it's basically just a weed haven. I have no landscape designer abilities whatsoever. I really don't need more growing space. I was thinking of making cement blocks and putting them down here. I envision weeds still growing between the blocks, and it's not a vision I'm keen to see to fruition.
Does anyone have any ideas for me?
