The Entrance Area is Transforming

The entrance area is undergoing a radical and sometimes controversial transformation. It is the centerpiece area of the site, the place that everyone sees as they are coming to the home, and that everyone walks through to go just about anywhere. Until now it has been an open area of compacted earth. There was very little shade from the hot hot sun, cars drove all over it, and it created a lot of dust which dirtied everything and made it hard to breath sometimes. The children swept the entire area twice a day which caused a lot of erosion. In the rainy season more soil was washed away and it turned into a mud pit which is difficult to walk on.

Below is a draft design of the area along with photos of some of the changes that are taking place. We have planted 20 fruit trees in the area and will be planting 22 more in the hopes that this area will be a lush food forest someday providing shade, a place to hang out, and many varieties of fruit throughout the year. We have also fenced out vehicles, dug up the hard compacted earth and will be planting Bermuda grass to control erosion, dust and mud, keep the soil loose to absorb more water for the trees, and to provide a lawn for children to walk and play on.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
