Bloom Street Townhomes: Yard reborn

Today was great warm spring day and we tackled the rear yard on one of the Bloom Street Town homes.

As was expected the yard was a disaster. Years of being rentals , well there really was no yard. However the stone beds were there and after some "archaeological digging" the original courtyard configuration took shape.

Another surprise is it appears that the stone patio is simple buried under about 4 inches of dirt. That will happen on another day. Obviously more to come but standing on the top terrace (overlooking the middle terrace in this photo) , this was once a well maintained garden and with a little hard work it will be again. We are hopeful the other townhouse yard will reveal some great things too.

Can't wait to start planting!
