Here is the before photo in 2013.
I stopped by a busy intersection in Brookline where I had installed a garden several years ago. The goal was to create somewhat of a buffer between the house and the street and to hide a secret garden for a small child to explore. I was curious as to how the garden held up and if the objective was met. A successful garden should look great as it is planted but also needs to go the distance. What do you think?
