Remember when we got a new backyard? Well, we got a new front one too. Yes, we overhauled both yards at once. It was awesome because I didn’t do a thing!
Waaaay, way back, our front looked like this. It was tree mania!
Then it looked like this, with a few trees removed (like that hulking blue spruce):
But, there was still A LOT going on:
Our landscapers worked hard, even moving this huge rock stuck right in the middle of our lawn. It was the size of a Wee Little Amelie!
She’s so cute. Am I right, or am I right?
Cleaner. Simpler. Greener!
A before view from our front step (from this post):
The landscapers trimmed back the juniper jungle on the corner too:
Eventually, I’d like that taken out. This space gets afternoon sun and I am hoping to plant some peonies or hydrangeas here. Hydrangeas might be best since it’s such a large space to fill up but I still want to make sure the fire hydrant is accessible. Any thoughts or tips are welcomed! I’m not a fan of the pine tree but the tree expert encouraged us to leave it since it was straight and the biggest tree on our property. I find them quite messy with the needles and acorns and sap, though.
I’m excited to add color with more perennials. I’ve already done a little work out here that I hope to show you soon. I think I need someone to help me develop a plan because I’m doing this piece-meal and already have regrets over a few plants I planted last year. Oh well, live and learn!
Three posts in a row? This is not like me. Are you wondering if I am alright?
