Checker board garden

I had lots of cement pads left & decided to make a checkerboard full of thyme etc.

Wow, lots of ideas here. How big is your plot in total?

Very nicely done, great idea. From this photo you can see the overall setup of your garden.

This is a lovely garden,love all of it especially how you have laid it out and those wonderful tall trees in the background are very nice

Those Tall trees are in a park, so we are very lucky to have privacy on that side. Scary in Winter storms but be that close to the BIG ones.

That is good then because it looks like the trees are part of your landscape.The top Gardeners over here in the UK are always telling uws folk to borrow theviews beyond our own gardens if we have them.

Yes,I can imagine it must get a bit scary.Over here the large Beech trees are normally the ones that go over especially across the roads and then the fir trees go over in the forests which isn't too bad.

Great idea...and you were successful... do you mow it to keep it low...or did you plant thymus praecox?

No Lori, I have to hand clip it, but I am c going to make some correction, some of the thyme is just growing too high, so it will be corrected, LOL
