Put a lil love ...

in the outside. When we first purchased the home I knew I wanted to do something different to the outside landscaping. Last Spring we hired someone to remove all of the bushes from the front and plant a Blue Spruce tree for us. We then planted some more small leyland cypresses in the front of the house. Here are some before and after pictures.




Before








After (this was when we first planted everything, since then all is much bigger)









My goal for this year is to repaint the shutters burgundy. From sun exposure they are a bit faded and it drives me nuts. I then want to add window boxes below each of the three windows. A friend of mine photo shopped what it might look like below. I love it and can not wait to get them !






We've also done some backyard work as well. We began with a backyard gem that looked like this




And turned it into this.... We've put some more ornamental grasses behind the trellis/arbor. We are going to be redoing the retaining wall this spring too ... Now only if we can get grass to grow this year it would be amazing !! Baby steps lol
