When we moved into our house 3 years ago, my husband quickly demolished what existing gardening/landscaping we had. He took a Sawzall and sawed off limbs and dug up all the shrubbery in the front of the house. The bushes were pretty ugly; however, looking at the barren landscape of our front yard, I'd say it's almost as bad. The plan was to start from scratch, but until recently, the front of the house hadn't been a huge priority. Part of that was due to our efforts on the kitchen remodel
Here is a side view of the front of our house.
The house has always had the nice white shutters and last year we replaced the front door and added a keyless lock in antque bronze. I would love to eventually build a porch or portico, but that's a much bigger, more expensive project. I have given myself a few attainable goals for this spring.
- Mulch the front beds
- Add window boxes
- Add some outdoor friendly decor
DIY Spring Wreath Ideas
I want to take on more DIY projects and got inspired by Michael's National Craft Month Maker's competition and the post put together by Positively Splendid. The initialized wreath she entered into their competition is gorgeous and got me pinning away other DIY wreaths. Some different options have been laid out below.
