RAISED BEDS AND GRAVEL - make a lovely, manageable, organized garden. They keep pathway weeds from garden soil, prevent soil compaction, provide good drainage and serve as a barrier to pests such as slugs and snails. The sides of the beds keep valuable garden soil from being eroded or washed away. Raised garden beds also reduce back strain when bending over to tend the bed. modern gardens, veggie gardens, raised gardens, raised bed gardens, interior garden, vegetables garden, garden design ideas, dream gardens, raised garden beds

Love the checkerboard paving - if you were careful about the 'grass' you planted, you wouldn't need to mow (e.g. microlaena, chamomile, thyme, creeping mint, even violas...) I've always loved this idea, but having to continually maintain it put me off. Love the idea of a ground cover that wouldn't need to be mown secret gardens, lawn, chess boards, alice in wonderland, garden paths, side yards, patio, backyard, stepping stones
