Between my driveway and the foundation of my house is about an 8 inch wide area, filled with stones. During the last three months, this area has become a veritable garden of grass and weeds, something that startled me since it was pristine and clean in November.
Well, I finished up the website I was working on last night, so I decided to take some time today to clean this out. I figured it would be easy — just rake out the rocks and pull out the weeds. Wash the rocks, make sure the weed-supressant fabric is in place, and then put them back.
It took me nearly three hours and probably 100 gallons of water to get the rocks clean and weed out the plants. I was left with a driveway full of dirt and a huge mound of weeds and grass. Who knew that this would be such a workout?
I can’t wait until I am rich enough to have a team of gardeners working for me.
Still, there’s some satisfaction when the job is done.
