It's been about 8 weeks since we planted in front of our house. Wanna had put in some pumpkin and an assortment of beans etc. They had a good start in manure and rice grass etc so we expected good results. I had added a small irrigation system with drippers etc making it easy to irrigate. Results so far look good. It all goes to help getting the place more settled. New concrete always looks rough and raw. So add in some greenery and your on your way to making it all look so much better.
