Everything between the X's must go. There are two rows of these edging stones, the first one is almost level with the grass. Winter interest is about zero here, hopefully with a little more thought it will look better in all seasons.
From the front you can see it's the largest plants in the bed that need to moved. The Mexican Orange (Choysia ternata) has grown huge in the few years it's been here but had a very small root ball for its size. I never realized how good the foliage from this plant smelled until I started working around it.
The plan for tomorrow will be to mark the area that will be the path with stakes and twine so that I can make it even, especially since it's right in front of our house. My husband will never let me forget how I tried to make a path in our backyard, which I wasn't paying attention to as I worked, and it ended up being way too narrow and kind of silly looking. Tomorrow's weather looks like it should be another mild day with sun.
