Probably better than mine.
But considering that I’ve not put spade to ground for more than a decade, and that our yard is mostly sand, and that we are plagued by gophers and intense sun, it’s not too bad for a first try.
This particular plot is nestled into the roots of a recently felled tree, in the hopes that the dryad will stick around. Plus the network of roots underground keeps those pesky gophers at bay.
