Call it the "Penultimate Garden" because you KNOW it won't be the last one you create! I tip my hat to you.

Your suggestion is too open ended. No way I can do another garden. If I have enough fencing to finish this last garden then I don't have cash to buy more fencing and posts. Of course if I don't have enough fencing and I buy another roll to finish then I have some left over.
We are cash poor. A roll of fencing and enough posts for same is about $600. Way too much for my budget.
I'm leaning towards The Very Last Garden. Not very poetical, I know.

Maybe I will rename them all to remove this stress. Like The Zen Garden, The Meditation Garden, The Garden of Eden, Oh Be Joyful Garden, The Smile Garden. The Wonderful Garden.

I already have The Aloha Garden, Bamboo Shangri La, The Starburst Garden, The Secret Garden, The Lost Garden.

Love all the names. Don't you wish you could employ a team of gardeners like the Victorians did in their Stately Homes? Smiling

If I had that much money I would be living in a stately home in England!

I keep offering people the coins I find in the sofa cushions to come and haul mulch for me, but so far no takers.
