So except for flowers that aren't in season yet (black eyed susans, etc) the rain garden (all the hard work!) is finished.
Some before and after for ya:
What the left side of the yard looked like a year ago...
Now, the fence is up, and the entire left side of the yard is a rain garden to help with the run off you see from the house in the "old picture.
In this old picture I wasn't sure where the property line was and there was a lot of crap/debris on the property line. That all got cleared out, the swing got put in, and the raised beds all got moved over to the side
In the corner is a cherry tree and an indian hawthorne, along with my new favorite thing- the doggie composter
