I moved each block and each shovel of dirt myself. I am tremendously proud of the work I did.
I even put in a section of river rock to catch the dirty water when I cleaned out the bird bath.

However, the dogs had different uses for the garden.
|Hole and pot blockade|
This is the very deep hole that Bogie has decided needed to be dug in this new soft dirt. I filled it back in three times before giving up.
Next to it is the "pot blockade" that keeps this cactus from being dumped into said hole.
I spent considerable time ensuring that the ground was level across the front of the rocks. Not time well-spent, apparently.
The tomato cages that keep the dogs from walking all over the newly transplanted cactus.
Not the garden that I envisioned, but a garden the dogs and the cactus both enjoy.
