I started by taking out the stepping stones and all of the plants except the citrus trees (which were too heavy to lift) and those in front of the trellises (which I wasn't planning on moving). After I pulled the weeds that were starting to take over, I had a semi-blank slate.
I guess it's time to relax on the front porch with a glass of wine and enjoy the view. I'll be using the wine bottles for a couple of upcoming projects so I better get to work on gathering the supplies I need.
Be well and happy gardening!
