York (Toronto) front garden cleanup and renovation: weeding and new perennials

A new front garden in the York area of Toronto

Wendy and Connie desperately needed some colour (besides the green from the weeds) in their front garden and asked me to help. This small raised bed faces east and gets full sun until about early afternoon when the house blocks out the sun. It's completely choked with creeping bellflower (Campanula rapunculoides) with one very dead globe cedar rounding out the picture on the right. The existing "Emerald 'n Gold" euonymus on the left was not to be moved, unfortunately!

Digging out the finger-thick roots of the bellflower was tedious but necessary to weed the bed without herbicides. I added composted cow manure to amend the mediocre (at best) existing soil.


New plants include sun-loving perennials like "David" summer phlox, "Autumn Joy" sedum, "Moonbeam" Threadleaf coreopsis and "Jacob Cline" beebalm. I re-purposed/recycled a languishing "Crimson Queen" Japanese maple. After watering, a 2-3" layer of cedar mulch was applied to reduce watering and weeding.

We should see good results in 2-3 years as the perennials establish themselves with regular watering and weeding.

The backyard lawn was completely covered/replaced with creeping charlie, goldenrod, broadleaf dock, mulberry and Manitoba maple saplings and burdock! The client wants to re-sod the area: therefore, the entire area was weeded in preparation.
