The photos say it all.
That’s low maintenance at its best.
What I did was dig three holes and mix cow manure and peat moss into the soil that was removed from the hole. Run water into the hole to soak. Place the roses and return the amended soil mix around the plant and pat it in.
The next step was to cover the grassy soil area with cardboard and then heavy duty landscape fabric. Why cardboard? To smother the grass and weeds and hold moisture in. I have done this before and know it will remain weed free for a decade.
I’m almost done. As the earth and mulch settle over the next couple of weeks, I will tweak the front bricks to be even and cover any bare spots that come through.
Then on to the next project….there’s always a next project, right?
