These are my neighbors roses. They are called Knock Out Roses. They are really beautiful and he said that they chop them down a lot. They smell good too. Sounded like a low maintenence plant to us.
The soil in this area is very poor. We fondly refer to it as "Tennessee Top Soil". AKA - rocks!
So we set out to build an appropriate planter.
83 blocks, 23 caps, 34 bags of "inhanced soil" and 11 bags of decorative rock (instead of mulch), 2 days, 3 people, 5 rose bushes later....AND THIS IS WHAT WE GOT !!!!
I really LOVE it!
