Thanks to all who gave advice about what to do with this annoyingly narrow strip of dirt we got as a result of the fence guys building our fence the wrong way around. Thought I’d update you with my latest thoughts and feelings on the matter.
The neighbours have built a courtyard kind of thing on the other side of the fence, which slopes towards our fence. We have a concrete footpath down that side, which also slopes towards the fence. As a result, this little dirt strip is a boggy, wet mess.
Funnily enough, you all advised me to plant some kind of plant in this strip (who would have thought that would be the response from people who follow a gardening blog ;)). I’m worried about this option now that I see how boggy this dirt strip gets. And our soil is on the clay side so it stays wet.
So my latest thoughts and feelings are this: fill it in with concrete when the concrete guys come to lay the slab for our shed. It’s not so pretty. But it’ll be better than dead plants and mud. Thoughts?
