Plants added to Patio Area

Lots of progress on the front patio so far this week. Most of the plants are in place and this morning, the concrete block base for the pizza oven was built. Here are some pictures showing the plantings. Landscape fabric is down in all the areas that will have some type of rock cover. The wiring for the lighting is in place and you can see one of the copper lights in the first picture.

The path ways will be pea gravel with some stepping stones and then about half the ground area under the plants will be covered with river rock. Looks like we'll have a nice mix of plants that promise to do well in the area. The landscaper used some of our alpaca poop compost for the plants and seemed to be quite impressed with it- very close to the consistency of peat moss.
