What I did this past Weekend!
Sometimes a good plan works with no problems and no one getting hurt! That's a good thing for me!!
We tackled an area on the side of our deck to remove the awful dirt and rock and replace it with life-sustaining garden soil! While we were at it, and with the deck bottom opened up and exposed, the guys put plastic under it to protect from moisture and we added a skirting to keep the critters out. I've wanted this since we moved in 3 years ago and the bushes and two Hemlock trees were dying and had to be removed leaving the area bare and very ugly. Now it is beautiful with rich soil waiting to be designed into a beautiful garden. So what to plant and how to arrange it is the next step!
