So hubby decided to sabotage me (okay maybe I am over-exaggerating, but he don't have to know). One weekend, when it was just me and my girls out at one of our many basketball tourneys, he decided to attack the mulch! Ok, so he hired someone to clean the yard up a bit, you know, put some mulch down, trim some shrubs, and clean-up that stinking baby oak tree that had limbs going out from everywhere. My sweet husband thought he was doing something that would put a smile on my face when I arrived home on Sunday evening. I feel bad about now, but I gave him HELL! As soon as I turned the corner, all I could see was what looked like neon orange colored cheapy mulch. Ugh, I was HOT, oh know he did not!!!!!!
I looove the way it transformed the view of the front entrance. It actually looks much bigger and it feels more open and therefore more welcoming. I plan to add a some pizazz some how. Just gotta do my research.
Everywhere you look is like discovering something new everyday. I can not wait until the shrubs reach full maturity, because that where the layering and dimension is going to come in.
I wish I could tell you what theses are, but I am not even going to front! Remember, no green thumb...no problem! So this is what I told the Gardener; different color greens, red flowers (not bright red), spiky grass things, and some rocks. Is that technical enough for you?!! So what your are seeing are his interpretations of what I asked for. I could not be happier!
I also asked him to frame the sidewalk by adding landscaping to either side of the sidewalk. I am loving the presentation. Here is also a better view of my front door entrance. Oh man, I am just giddy over it! Now we are able to cross one thing off the list.
