The Oak Hill Project

As many of you know, Shelli and I used to live at Big Oak Ridge in the old house.  In November we bought a house up on Oak Hill in Franklin.  I thought it was kind of fitting that we would move from Oak Ridge to Oak Hill.

This category listing will be for posts pertaining to the project here.  We are trying to take what we learned there and put it use here.

We have already planted pampas grass down one side of yard and started our garden.  We were going to do raised beds like Big Oak has, but there is not as much rock here and the dirt is nice.  So we decided to till and go the standard route.

Unfortunately, this meant digging up the whole thing by hand since it was too tough for our friends tiller to cut through.  Also there had been a swimming pool here so there was a big hole in the ground to fill in.  We spent $300 on dirt and only got about a quarter of it filled.

So hand digging, and pulling rocks out and using the small tiller to turn it up.  The garden will be small this year and we will slowly work on expanding it as time goes on.  I hope to post updates as we do stuff.
