Behind the Fence on the edge of the Natural Area
Rob and Marshall - Spring 1989
This was , the start of the natural landscaping behind the fence. The location had been used as a tip for grass clippings and other yard garbage. I used a wheel barrow and mined the good organic material for the vegitable garden and removed some motor oil soaked material. The stones had originally been set along the back fence line. Over the next few years we moved small bushes and other volunteer sprouts behind the fence line - including our youngest son's spruce tree from school.
This is the backfence line - over the years we have planted many trees and bushes that germinated in the yard. The vegitation along the fence line is now quite dense and serves many smaller animals and birds.
