A small, weed infested lawn was replaced by a stone raised flower bed surrounded by a flagstone path. 2018 was the first year this stone monster was planted with flowers and greenery. The flowers began small but promised to grow taller and wider and eventually to overflow the walls.

The lower front (street facing end) of the monster was planted with columbines and gerber daisies. The space behind will be planted in tulip bulbs in the fall.

A platform in the upper front of the raised monster was supported underneath by cinder blocks. Eventually either a large stone, or a statue, or a potted plant will occupy this platform. Eventually the pink creeping flowers will occupy the entire space around the platform.

Herbs were planted along the narrow edge. Over the summer these are expected to grow large.
