Front Yard Garden Tour

Hello lovely Friends! Did anyone bust out the mixer and make cupcakes after Tuesday's post ha ha! :D I'm back today with my Décor Enthusiast girls sharing all things outdoors for this month's décor challenge! I am sharing my outdoor space in the front of my house, since I needed to get it in gear for Spring anyway! I've included a few affiliate links so you can find the products I use.

Instead of my original perfect grouping of three, I now have  many pairs, with one being … [Read more...]

The Easiest Way to Water Your Garden

I recently shared a very detailed post on how to create a landscape from scratch.  I wanted to talk about watering your garden in a separate post so I could go into a bit more detail.

We are all guilty of purchasing plants or flowers in a feel good moment the minute warm weather declares  it's here to stay, only to neglect them once the real heat rolls in...when they need us the most.

How to Create a Landscape from Scratch

I have really enjoyed sharing my landscaping makeovers and hearing all of the awesome feedback. It was a lot of hard work that is really paying off.  I love my outdoor space. I have been asked several questions about my makeovers with the most frequent one being, "How did I know what plants to buy?" First I am going to share with you how I came up with my landscape plan and the work that went into creating my planting beds.  After all, you can't plant anything until the beds are ready, … [Read more...]

Front Yard Transformation

  I am  really excited to share my outdoor makeover  with you.  I spent a lot of time online looking for inspiration for this project. I was basically starting from scratch.

I wanted a garden, not just a carefree landscape which is what I kept finding in my searches.  I am sharing this early enough in the season so that someone might find some inspiration for their own yard.  However, because my garden is still a bit sleepy and just waking … [Read more...]
