|The 'Before' Picture|
First step - clearing away all that grass! That was supposed to be a mulched area. Isn't it amazing how grass grows so well wherever you don't want it to?
I used rocks as walls, lined the edges with landscaping fabric so the dirt wouldn't fall through the cracks, and then filled it with dirt - nice, composty-rich dirt.
I left room by the downspout for a rain barrel which is going in as soon as I get it painted.
