Milo Valley Farm - landscaping, part 3

by brae  

Continuing work on the landscaping.  I added additional dark brown fine ballast around the bushes and touched up the rabbit hole.

I am still deciding on the grass mat I will use, but I will need a template no matter which I choose.  I made the template using tracing paper.  Since I couldn't see the dark dirt line through the paper, I lightly pressed masking tape along the edge.

I traced the line with a pencil, adding more toward the dirt since I can always trim any excess.

I cut the template and checked the fit.

I continued around the front and opposite side, taping pieces together as needed.

I'll use this template to cut the grass mat.

But, landscaping will now be put on hold until later in the build.

The landscaping is wonderful, Brae. Can't wait to see it all evolve. I have to add that the rabbit hole is inspired! I was just watching one of our wild bunnies dining on some of our grass this morning.

I learn so much from you Brae! I had no idea landscaping needed to be plotted like this!

Love your irregular border. Very natural. Now I need to go look at your grassy builds to see what they look like.

It's always a pleasure to see your projects build up stage by stage.

I always wonder how you figure out what to do next. At this point, I imagine you have learned a lot about what will get in the way of what else, if done first, but still, I love seeing how you move from one task to another, and how it makes sense later that you chose one feature over another at any given time.

The landscaping is looking amazing! I like how the colours are complimenting each other and the way the foundation is blending in so nicely with the surroundings. Can't wait to see the grass added :)

Thank you!! :>> I definitely do have a better grasp on order of things (as my preference, that is), but I still often get caught in the chicken-or-egg scenarios. :))

I love the last photo, which appears to show the farm in winter. The snow has melted a bit where the roof overhang makes it shallower and the sun's heat has reflected from the building. The snow has also gone from where people have walked into the doorway. Even the plants look wintery in the photo. I know that the finished results will be even better, but this is wonderful too. I'm looking forward to spring arriving at Milo Valley Farm!
