We have spent the last FOUR days landscaping our house and I finally washed the
dirt mud off my hands to tell you about it!! Ha!
Well, because I love-LOVE a good Before/After, allow me to present to you our BORING home. No landscaping. No color. No character. Please try not to fall asleep while you stare at this picture.
And here we are now!
Since our home was a new build we moved in with NO sort of landscaping whatsoever. No even grass. In a way, that was good because we got to put our own personality into everything.
We met with a landscape artist who gave us an idea of what to do and we planted and installed everything ourselves (and with the help of my parents who came over for Memorial Weekend!! :)
In the front bed along the house we have Dwarf Alberta Spruces, Double Knock-Out Roses, Blue Chips and a Sienna Sunrise bush with some ornamental grass. In the bed around the tree we have lots of white blooming perennials.
Now let's hope I can remember to water everything! Ha!
