Woodland Shade Gardening

Woodland shade gardening with a purpose – pleasure, creativity, rainwater collection!

Pictures?

I’m sure I wrote you about watching the rainwater slow down with this 10-12″ deep pile of chipped leaves, but I don’t think I ever sent you the pictures.  There are some loose, whole leaves on top that fell on it after I dumped quite a few lawnmower bags of chipped leaves and stepped & stepped on them to compress them.  I kind of like the way the little retaining wall seems to make it’s way through a leaf bed, rather than the little wall just being the boundary of the  bed.  I may play with piling some leaves outside some other sections of some of the beds.  Or maybe not!  This berm held that day when we got 1″ of rain in 30 minutes, on already wet soil.  The berm was already wet through pretty well, so maybe that made it more dense and able to slow the rainwater.
