this was my first year ever with a garden (did veggies and some flowers) I did a small plot in the side yard. I really did enjoy it alot. well next spring/summer I want to go all out and do something really nice in the front yard I really want to do some rock walkways, I want flowers and veggies. but will the front yard look a mess once winter comes. we live in Mass/zone 6. should I turn the soil now before the ground freezes? should I draft out what I want for the yard? does anyone know of a web site that helps with this. there are 2 lilac trees at the end of the space that I do not want to get rid of (or move) I planted them when we bought the house in May. this pic is a pic of the space in May also when we moved in. right now I just have some sunflowers and marigolds around the edge.
