- Ever since we added an extra garage and widened our driveway, the rock garden was an obstacle to drive any vehicle in-or-out of the new garage.
- Snow plowing was difficult. Since the big boulders were right next to the new driveway, there was no place to push the excess snow.
- Black Walnut trees grow behind the garden and even though the plants tolerated the juglone toxicity, they never really thrived.
- And I can't lie, I'm okay with having one less garden to maintain.
Now the garden is gone; the dirt has been leveled and seeded with grass. The perennials were relocated or given away, and the boulders are by our neighbor's fish pond. We did keep a few of our favorite boulders to incorporate into our landscape at a later date. After pondering this demo for a couple of years, this was the year that it finally came to fruition. Happy face/Sad face.
