House Post: Almost-Finished Terrace

The bulk of the work on the kitchen garden terrace is done, and it’s been fun to see what grows and what doesn’t grow all summer.

Last week, I finally got off my butt and put in the last layer of terracing: just one set of boards across the very top.

As you can see, the grass growing around is a bit out of control. The last step will be to trim that all down/rip it out as best possible, lay down landscape fabric, and then put some drainage rocks on top – at the bottom, top, and along the side by the stairs.

That may happen this fall, or it may happen next spring. Frankly, it depends more on budget than on time.
