If I had to guess, I would say the previous owner of this home was an avid gardener and this may have been an amazing shade garden in better days.

When we acquired the home it was a mess of weeds scattered with “behemoth” flagstones making several paths throughout. The paver path was now precarious.

After pulling out a huge collection of odd items (some you can see in the background) it is obvious that the shed was used for potting plants.

A very generous friend helped me by moving the many heavy stones out of the garden so that the rest of the clean up could commence.
Now we have nice neat piles:

These surrounded 3 yew bushes when they where planted. Not even visible until we tore out what became the giant hedge.
Probably paths through a charming shade garden–at one time.
Maybe these will find a new use elsewhere in the yard?

The progression…

to this:

YAY! ready for some good shade grass seed!
