Construction is happening on a corner of the lot, and it will be necessary to remove a chunk of fence and dig up several hundred square feet of the garden. I’ve been tending that corner of the yard for a long time, and now it’s covered with native plants. When it’s time to put the area back together, there won’t be anything to do except stand back and let things recolonize.
This approach might not work in every neighborhood, but close to downtown, I find it refreshing to spend my time in a patch of native woods.
