Logs are a misunderstood garden tool. Logs can be used in a variety of ways, and come in a variety of shapes and sizes to create unique eye-catching elements in any garden. They are also affordable, long lasting, and readily available.
For this client, we installed a lovely raingarden in the front yard to catch the roof runoff. It was a great way for the client to take advantage of the RainWise Program rebate, while also having space in the budget to create more usable area for gardening.
For the edges of the yard, we created a tiered raised bed system using a variety of logs, both large and small. We incorporated a log pathway from the sidewalk into the yard to make the beds more accessible, as well as several round logs within the bed to use stepping stones.
It was great to see all of the edible plants flourishing in the newly installed beds. I must say that the tomatoes looked scrumptious, and the cucumber I was given by the owner was an excellent addition to dinner that evening!
