We are finally fixing up our front and back yards and I am SO excited. The front is getting a whole new walkway, landscaping and eventually some paint. It's been in a pretty sad state since we moved in and I'm not sure why - I think we just didn't have a vision. But now we do! I put together an inspiration board for the porch - a little mid-century, a little modern, a lot like the inside of our house. We are planting all native plants because we want to conserve water and I am horrible at keeping green things alive. Really. I almost killed our mint and mint is like a weed.
Here is what it looked like...
A friend said recently she would never imagine the inside of our house to look the way it does based on the outside. I would be offended if it weren't so true.
For the last few weeks I have been pouring over DIY landscaping design books from the library, watching way too much HGTV and have drawn out a plan. Forest and his dad spent all last Saturday ripping out the walkway and they are going to continue the work again this weekend. Will post the progress!
