Welcome, Bienvenido, Écouter, Aloha....

Now that you have seen our work in our back yard, let's talk about our front yard. This what you see first after all isn't it?
When we moved in the house had some large bushes in the front of the home. It wasn't that it didn't look okay, but it wasn't quite balanced. I had no idea what to plant because I never did so before, it was all new to me. So after some research and visits to the local nurseries, we finally decided what we wanted...

Here is one last look. Notice all four of the bushes in the front of the house and the very large round bush to the right of the picture too.

We then removed all bushes and planted first a blue spruce tree. This picture is before the other plantings.

Then we planted some low Cyprus mops next to the tree and something I really don't know the name of, I swear I am going to start writing down the names of things we plant.

And a picture of how it looks a year later. They all grew so much !

One day we will add some window boxes and repaint the shutters too. We planned on doing that this year but it just didn't work out that way. Oh well there is always next year !
