A Vinca Hill Update

DeeLynnDeeLynn Tennessee, USAPosts: 18
Just thought I'd give an update on 'Vinca Hill'. We've cleared over half of the vines. There is Vinca, Asian Jasmine, wild grape vine and Poison Ivy. The poison ivy caused a lovely rash which resulted in a doctor's visit, lots of meds and a few days out of order so I'm not as far along as I had hoped.

Where we started:

Where we are now. We thought the entire hill was covered in rip rap but it is actually 4 tiered rock walls on just the one end. It looks like someone had it landscaped as a rock garden at one time.

Still have this strip to do.

And this bit at the end going into the back yard.

    Well done. It makes my little vinca battlefield (one side of the front garden) seem much more manageable!

    Thanks @B3. A battlefield is an apt description. Good luck with yours.

    You’ve worked so hard Dee,  what a job! 
    That is such a beautiful place to live, you must be very happy there.

    Isn't there just the best feeling of satisfaction when you clear a piece of land, well done.

    Thank you @Lyn, We do love it here. Will love it more once vine Hill has been tamed. 😀

    Thank you @Mary370. It makes the property look completely different. Now I get to plan what to plant for some erosion control which is even more fun.
