The Scrappy Place

I'm not sure every gardener has a place like this in their garden. It is a spot where everything that doesn't have a home elsewhere gets stuck. In this case it is over the septic tanks that I found out the hard way need immediate access occasionally. All of these random plants have been propagated from others in the yard and were in need of a home. This is a walkway by the pool equipment and is usually just passed right by, but still an opportunity in the sunlight to do something interesting. We'll see how it develops.

Hi Shelia. My odds and ends usually end up in a small bed I have beside the shed.I know about finding those lost septic tanks. I had to dig up part of a garden bed when ours had to be cleaned.
Was not my best idea to plant over it but really I thought it was down further in the yard. LOL!
Wishing you and yours a Wonderful Christmas.

The wood pavers are a clever solution for the access point, though.

"A spot where everything without a home gets stuck"? Why that would be ALL of my beds ... and yet none of them looks as good as your "scrappy bed."
