Expanding a Garden

This is a garden across from the chicken coop, near the orchard. It gets sun in the morning and early afternoon. My first thought was that it would become an herb garden, but now am rethinking that plan, as the chickens like to hang out here. They can be a little destructive on new plants, and I would not want them pooping on edible herbs.

Currently it is a long border full of weeds, trumpet vine, aparagus, goldenrod, day lilies, columbine, coreopsis, ox eye daisies, and rudabeckia. The plan thus far is to enlarge it into a semi circle with a path leading to a patio with a bench in the center. I also already marked out and planted a couple of evergreens and spirea to add structure. Here is what it looks like so far. More to come later.

Changing the design eh? This is news to Thorny Guy...

I think it would be easier to make a fence around it with a nice gate to get in.
