Planting the part-shaded garden

As you’ll see from the images, I planted the matrix grasses in a grid pattern. This will make it easier to see what is grass and what is weeds.

Then I planted the forbs in the gaps.

You’ll see some of the grasses are starting to go into dormancy by late September. Fingers crossed they’ll sprout up green in the spring.

I didn’t mulch this time. I might however sow some native annual seeds in the spring to fill in the gaps. I will keep you posted.
