Landscaping around the Pool

The hill around the pool needed some attention. This morning Maddie, Laurie and myself hopped into the car and headed to see our pal Al at Thompson Ridge Nursery.

We were the first to arrive at 10am this Sunday morning. We rule. What does arriving first get ‘ya? Alan’s coveted undivided attention! So we rounded up some creeping perennials. No annuals. Nuh-uh. Laurie will have no Annuals ever as she feels they are a waste of time and money. Here is our loot:

Laurie's Birthday money well spent!

Laurie, as usual, wasted no time in getting to work on the hill behind the pool:

The roped off area (right of the ladder) is going to be the deck.

One more step closer to being done. About one million more steps to go.

    What the difference between creeping perennials and annuals?

      Pernnials come back every year…you do not have to buy and replant them every season. Annuals mean you have to buy and plant them at the start of every season. A waste of time and money.

      Now..creeping just means the plant grows along the ground and spreads out. Which makes for good ground cover, especially in the woods. Not too many people on Long Island would buy anything that creeps because it would basicly take over the whole garden. But with us, living in the woods, we likes them creeping plants yo.


  2. Yep, totally agree with Laurie here. I hate annuals. Can’t for the life of me understand why people waste money on them every year.


A good bartender always listens....
