New landscaping for the bee area

This is an area behind our barn, it is often neglected, then takes a week to clear out because it gets completely overgrown with blackberry bushes and grass, making this 48'x50' area impossible to mow!

The hope is to make it both pretty and very low maintenance!

Before:





Wildflower seeds



Putting in pathways.



Filling in the path next to the barn.


And after!


All the wildflower seeds are planted.


Here's the beehives in place.



The yellow wagon filled with gravel is for the bees to get water. They can land on the rocks and get a drink without drowning. This helps them to keep their hive cool during the summer.


I am so thankful for the time and energy, and financial contributions (in materials) that Chris's parents have done to help with so many projects around the property! It has been a huge blessing!
