The Not So Fun Side of Fairy Gardens
Weeds and Ground Cover
Clean the Pond
They even get a boat!
Pests Invade the Fairy Garden
Putting this ground cover was a mistake in the first place. It’s aggressive and has gone places I really didn’t want like the stream bed! Now small worms have infested it and eaten it to pieces! Since it needed to go anyway, Parks and Rec went ahead and removed it.
A new layer of moss takes it’s place in hopes to kill any that might think about returning. Although I need to go get a little more moss, it’s going to be a constant battle to kill the ground cover. Three weeks later, weeds are back in the creek bed and all over the grounds again!
Not One, but Two Fairy Gardens in the Yard
After lots of work everything is nice and clean. All the goodies are placed back on the grounds for the little guys. Looks good, right?
Those pesky weeds are relentless for sure. All the buildings, yard toys and fairies were place and it looked so nice….fast forward 3 weeks. The bush over the main house enveloped the grounds and weeds galore. Here is The Not So Fun Side of Fairy Gardens.
Worth the Effort
