This area by the fence is one of the 'patio's' that I created between gardens. Raked smooth so that they are easy to walk on. There is quite a large one by the fence in the back corner. I was sitting and pondering it. It is right by a cedar hedge so nothing will grow there. I realized that it would be perfect for potted plants. So I popped the potted herbs there. I think they brighten up that area nicely. I will add more.
