A few pages back, I have some more of the start of this project. We wrapped up a couple weeks ago. Here are a couple 'before' shots to refresh memories and the completed project. We're very happy with the result, but I can't wait to see this in a couple years when it fills in. It's very perennial-heavy with lots of grasses and details that should merge into a nice landscape.

And more..... we have so many pictures of this I'm just throwing up randoms. Too much time to put them in a decent order or pick the "best."

These are pretty much final pics-

Beautiful Job! I always love seeing your work. Whenever I work on a design project I come to your thread for ideas in plant material. Is that wild thyme that is planted in the larger of the flagstone walkways. Top notch stuff man.

Yea, we put a bunch of thyme and some other small creeping herbs in between the step stones. The goal is for it to fill in the cracks and grow over the rocks here and there... Good eye! There's a strip of Ajuga near the cabin stairs too.

Thanks for the compliments. :drink up:

you do great work PE, I see the dingo in every picture, seems youve gotten your use out of it. Would you buy another?

Also what is the benefit of the pine straw over traditional mulch...I never see it up here in Maine but seems in the south mid-western area its popular.

Would I buy a second Dingo? HA, no. Am I glad to have it? Yes! I would do it over again. It's an excellent machine for what we do and it has saved countless labor hours and strain.

Pine straw is excellent on weed prevention. It adds a lot of good stuff to the soil as it breaks down, especially with the types of plants we tend to use the most. The "look" is unique also- a natural texture, reddish color... Good bales are easy to lay fast and it goes further than a bag of Cedar or Cyprus for about the same cost. It's not for everyone, but I think next year we'll be splitting a semi trailer with someone because we've gone thru a lot of bales this year.
