New Garden Bed

This is what I worked on at lunch today.
It looks like a small area in this picturebut at the rate I'm going
I should have this finished by Christmas.
First layer is newspaper.
Second are composted leaves.
Third is composted cow manure.(Bought by the bag)
Last is shredded bark.

I've never done anything like this before.
I don't know how it’s going to turn out.
The hostas and Japanese maple were planted before I started this.

We're in Zone 8b, too, but I don't think Hostas will survive here. We killed a pretty little Japanese Maple, too. Not fair!

I wonder why? Because its drier there?
(Not that you would notice right now...but Mobile is suppose to be the wettest city in the U.S.)

I think it actually gets a little hotter there too.
