Landscaping an Ugly Corner of the Yard

This corner of our gigantic, empty yard was clearly a dumping ground for the previous owners. There was a pile of rocks and smashed up concrete pieces from their old porch along with weeds, overgrowth and branches. With some sweat and basic garden tools I knew it could be transformed to a great focal point in no time.

I cleared the branches away and burned them


Next I cleared out a lot of the concrete chunks and started edging a bigger area to make a prettier shape.


Wait a minute these concrete chunks sort of look like rocks….I’ll use them!


After edging I lined the concrete chunks up as a border – free!

Looking good!


3 Bags of Mulch didn’t quite stretch through the whole area but it’s a start. We need some nice landscaping/bushes and shrubs but it’s starting to shape up!
