An update on our backyard terrace project

It has now been exactly two years since beginning our backyard terrace project. After filling both terraces continually for two years, both have composted down to the 1/2 way mark.  We are deciding to go another year or go ahead and begin planting now and continue to add much to raise the levels.   See the comparison below…
