When I said Mom was going to move rocks, I wasn't joking. Mom wants to put a "shade garden" along this wall of the house (that's her bedroom window.)
She thought there was nice dirt there, but she was wrong. She had to remove that plastic stuff under the old mulch, and the two big bins sitting on that pallet. The she had to move three big bunches of day-lilies that were growing there.
Mom can't plant her garden right up against the house, so she moved rocks. A landscaping company will be taking away the old mulch, tilling the ground underneath, and putting in several "yards" of good dirt.
THEN Mom can plant the special plants she bought for this space.
