Billy Winter came by yesterday to give me an estimate on expanding the beds against the back of the house. The plan is to extend them out as far as the forsythia. He'll till the soil, adding lime and whatever compost I can come up with. I'm thinking of a mixed shrub border with aucubas, per the design Betsy Sale provided. I also talked to the landscaper at Meadows Farms about a new plan for the terrace/deck/patio. She says they could either jackhammer up the existing concrete or lay something over it. I'll call her today to set up an appointment. For a $25 deposit, it's worth investigating.
