Creating a border
Having had a new patio out in recently we were able to create a new substantial border which we’ll plant up this spring. We also have the opportunity to create a long narrow border that will follow the sweeping curve of the patio, which, due to lawn levels, is approx 6” higher than the lawn for several meters. Plan is to have winter flowering heather and lavender in this border. It gets full sun all day. As the lawn sits lower I plan to build up the border so the roots don’t sit in water. I was thinking of flipping over the lawn turf along this stretch. If I was to do that now will it have rotted down sufficiently come the spring?
