Before- over grown, messy, lots of weeds, not at all pretty or friendly
The plan: there is a lot I want to change about the yard's landscaping-things that need to removed, and things I'd like to add. But....I want to give the landscaping a full year to see what blooms. And I need time to plan, research and honestly would rather spend money on furniture right now.
So for this year the plan is simple- weed and trim what is present in the yard, fill in with mulch, and plant annuals, veggies and herbs. Basically, care for what is here but neither add or remove permanent plants.
By 7:00 Sunday evening ("done" for this year)
What's left looks so puny and sad, but neat. Do the two window boxes look tacky/cheap?
I know, not very shapely, but at least they aren't overwhelmingly bushy.
There weren't any extra long boxes, and I didn't feel like taking the time to build any. Inside: 3 different annuals- more photos after they bloom. Each of the front windows has the same "design".
Yup- the clean, simple, pretty, well price Ikea pots at use. I just hope the flowers grow and fill in okay.
By the end of our second day of work all three of us were ready to lay down and chill out.
