Landscaping

My lovely husband has been working tirelessly to get our front yard finished. You may remember that last year we remodeled the yard when we moved in (see here). This year we took it a few steps further and ripped out a few plants we didn't have time to do last year, installed a drip system to all the plants, put up two retaining walls, and planted new plants (2 Hydrangea, a Coral Bell Azalea, 6 Soceity Garlics, and 2 Dwarf English Boxwoods). After several days of hard work from Mr. Howard and an all-dayer from the two of us yesterday, we got it all completed!!

New Retaining Wall! Time to layout new plants:
Begin Planting:
Install Drip System (don't I have a smart husband?):
Yard Complete! Left Side:
Yard Complete! Right Side:

I know it looks a little bare now, but the hydrangea is supposed to be 4-6 feet and the azalea will be 3-5 feet wide. Hopefully soon we'll have a blooming, full garden!

It looks beautiful! That reminds me, I would love to get a hydrangea or two for our side yard. I love to take pictures of newly planted spots, they are so fun to look back on as things grow and flourish. I think it all looks great. It is fun to envision what things can be. You'll have to post after pics later in the season. Enjoy your drip system and all your beautiful flowers. Yeah husbands, they are so crafty!
