The green arrow points to the unfinished area; the red arrow points to exposed foundation that I will overlay with a wood grid made of Cedar lath. In the moss—I know, it should be the Moss Garden—I've embedded a couple of Digitalis plants, several Campion plants and a great many Ferns. Daisies, a very small variety, will likely self seed. And I think I'll put a Japanese Maple where the green arrow is.
My plan was to do this garden next year and concentrate on the lawn this year, but I did the Fern Garden now so that I could put all the Ferns I find as I prepare the rest of the yard for seeding in the garden.
It's been the most challenging aspect of the backyard landscaping project.
