In the garden

In the Garden

I posted some time ago some pictures of the front of our home. This is our second season here at this home. We moved here Nov. 2009.

Well the flowers and plants have become overgrown and it's time for a change.

So here is the before of the front garden this past year .

Now here is the after. We had the landscapers here for the day and they did an awesome job at removing all the plants and laying down my new walkway and front step.

Since the grade was low to the driveway they laid 12" of limestone screenings.

Then laid the stone. I went with tumbled pewter to match our brick on the house. Since there was now a slope at the edge we they put down river rock.

As well river rock was put under the living room window.

Well what a transformation.

We are still in the process of landscaping the other half of the front.

That post will follow.

Not quite sure if I'm going to place a bench under the window or go with a bistro set.

What are your thoughts ?

until next time,

  1. What a change! Great look :) I personally would go with the bench under the window.

  2. What a difference. It looks lovely. I think a bench would work better on the stone.

  3. Well, looks like you are off to a fresh start, interesting space to work with, Celeste, victoriantailor.com

  4. I'm so curious where you live - your home looks so similar to one i lived in (Colorado?) You are going to have so much fun with a clean slate starting a garden! xoxo, tracie

  5. I know all about overgrown gardens, Linda! I've just spent weeks, in sweltering heat, reworking my vegetable gardens. There were MANY days I wished I had landscapers doing the work. ;)

    Sorry it has taken so long to visit. But the good news is, I just joined you as a follower and am featuring you tonight. Come by to see.
