There used to be 8" of pink granite landscaping rock here. Now there are three peonies and next spring I will be building a treliss (sp?) next to the porch to support a clematis. The mums are new. There used to be scraggly bushes there and two layers of rock. The first layer was easy to remove but the second layer was mixed with dirt to about 6 inches down. I had to sift all the dirt to get it clean. When I get done planting these beds next spring I will include more pictures. By the time I finished loading the dump truck with rock, it was loaded to within 2 feet of the back and about three feet deep. My shoulders were sore.
