Before, this is my garden that literally went to seed and to the weeds, this summer. John mowed almost everything down, and now there's room for the new, to Oliver, dog run. Our neighbor, Praise God, is giving us their dog run to add to our dog run so it'll go from being 12x16x6 feet to that size plus another 12x8x6 feet, I think it may actually be larger than that, we'll know for sure tomorrow once we have it all set up.
After, a few native plants were spared the lawn mower blade. Specifically the milkweed and the two white plastic buckets, which have their bottoms removed, are protecting my prairie dye plants.
Will post more photos tomorrow once we get the dog run up and usable.
