Encouraging the Jasmine
This week 18 more of the Trachelospermum asiaticum, asiatic jasmine plants were added to the newly planted circle garden. We started with 36 plants and the gaps between them just seemed a tad too wide. More jasmine means creeping together at a faster rate.
Faster creeping will speed up the finished look of a low lying carpet of greenery as a suitable replacement for the space that was previously covered with lawn grass.
A pathway of flagstone leading from the seating area to the large centered-pot was laid.
And in order to delineate the circle of greenery from the circular pathway surrounding it ~~newly placed wrought iron hose guides were situated at intervals around the perimeter.
Sweet little birdies atop to remind us where to walk and to assist in keeping the garden hose off of the plants.
