My rain garden is well underway and now is the time to plan my next project. I still need to plant the rain garden so it will remain on the list but there are a host of other projects to talk about. This will be the first of two posts. One post is just to list what has been started and how things are going and one to cover what I have been thinking about starting in the near future.
First here's what has been done or at least begun from the list:
Our Canadian hemlock privacy screen was planted. The plants are small but will eventually grow up to provide a thick hedge. Recently I built up the ground around the hemlocks with soil from the rain garden excavation to help drain the water better around the trees. The water from my neighbor's yard was backing up into our yard which gave them too much water and they don't like wet feet. I'm considering incorporating some other elements to the hemlock privacy screen but haven't decided what yet.
Driveway water drainage problem:
The rain garden is structurally done. It still needs to be tested by a good rain and the plants need to be planted. Here are the posts that follow the rain garden so far.

I listed this item as tulips on my To-Do list but I also put in daffodils. Now I just need to wait and watch.
