Cleaning up this border above the block wall was one of my tasks this week. I like to put my potted plants here for summer because it's shady with a touch of sun at certain times of the day.
I put down a layer of wood mulch just to make this area look nice this year, then put out my various indoor plants: Aloe (red container), a red velvet Echeveria (blue container) & Christmas Cactus (yellow container).
I noticed the mulch helped the clumps the Aspargus fern stand out.
My yard is lower then the herringbone property at this point, thus the need for the pretty block wall.
