Umm...I also am not a fan of the cedar mulch. I completely forgot that I prefer aged hemlock when I bought this stuff. But it was soooo cheap. Ah well, it'll only be for one season - then I can justify covering it with something darker and prettier.
The layout ended up being very close to what I had planned out. There were a few additions, including some creeping Jenny, but the only purchased plant was a pansy. The kid saw the yellow and black pansy and declared it a "tiger face" plant and wanted it for the new garden. For $1.50, how could I say no?
