Front Yardage

I told you we've been busy.

When we moved in, our front yard was less than decent at best. If you look closely you can see the dead crappy tree blocking the bay window, a shabby roof (they replaced that of course), and a weird flower garden full of wood chips that took up half the yard. Honestly, I think there was a fern, but not a single flower in that garden. Our neighbors informed us that the previous owner covered half his lawn with wood chips to make the upkeep easier. To each their own, eh.

When we moved in, we were ready to spruce the place up. We immediately sawed down both of the dead trees in the front yard. We also removed all of the old wood chips (that took forever), the old cheap plastic border, and we got to work on our own border, some planting and some grass growing. =]


It's been two months and this is what we've got. The border looks good, considering we were redecorating on a major budget. We are both incredibly proud of our grass growing skills. Especially because the huge tree in our yard blocks almost all sun.


I'm also loving the flowers. For now we've got a lot of annuals in there, but there are some perennials towards the back and I hope they'll fill things in next spring!
