Garden Path

Here is the before least of the massive crepe myrtle. Half way through our path project, we decided it would be a good idea to take it out. It had grown way too big and had at least twenty trunks.

Here is where we laid out the rocks, taken from our backyard garden. It's like a big puzzle to find out which ones are going to fit just right. Luckily, we did have one triangle shaped rock to finish out the curve.
In the end, we now have the perfect little path to access the hose without getting all muddy. And the brand new Siren Red crepe myrtle will finish off the look. We still like the look of a crepe myrtle but we bought one that will only get about 7-8 feet tall.

If we prune it correctly, it should turn out looking like this...
