We added several bags of Miracle grow garden soil to the thirsty old soil that was now about the only thing we had left in the flower beds after all that cleaning out. They did look pretty bare but they looked better already just from the manicure we did. Lets take a break I suggested to my helper who never complained once from all the heat and hard labor.
She helped me plant yellow Lantana, Coopers Ice Plant, and Blue Spruce Sedum as ground coverage. We also planted bright yellow Stella de Oro Daylilys, Mexican Heather, and GerberDaisys.
