|Sagina Grass/Irish Moss|
Today we shall revisit an area that I talked about in the past. Click HERE to see how this little area was created in my GEORGIA GARDENS.
This is a platform area by the crawlspace door of our house. I had planted Sagina grass aka: Irish Moss as this was an area by the AC unit. It was moist thus I thought it would do well.

It grew well in the beginning but once the heat of summer set in, the once pretty moss as you see above, all died away.
The following year, I gave a Creeping Thyme a chance in this spot. Above you see it soon after planted.
The Creeping Thyme was doing great until The Saint decided to put a little "Wet it and Forget it" on the siding of the house. He failed to rinse it off my plants below and it completely killed the thyme.
Since I was wasting my time, energy and money on plants, I have decided to think outside my Gardening box. I have come up with the idea of gravel.
The gravel of choice is a Drainage type that is small enough to fit nicely into all the tight little nooks of the brick design. The Saint likes this idea much better as it makes it much easier for him to get under the house when need be. I kind of wonder if that was not his plan all along when cleaning the siding of the house. Only he knows the answer to that question. Hum...
The saying goes, "Three's a Charm" and I hope this is the final bit of attention I must give to the CRAWLSPACE PLATFORM, In the Garden...
