before (during) & after PART I11:08 AM
BEFORE & DURING
we cut down the pine tree, yay!
3 types of ivy consumed the entire left side of the front yard. With the help of our families we cleared out a patch in front.
We also cleared the corner piece that was also completely taken over by ivy.
below is what our yard looked like as the snow melted and all the ivy lay dead and flat.
AFTER - PART I
we planted tick seed (yellow tall flower) and English Lavender in our little corner piece along with some ground cover. There was already a small patch of ground cover in front so I just continued it all around the edges. Lastly, we put down mulch.
Here is what it looks like in the front now. It just feels cleaner. We planted boxwood shrubs, hostas, lavender, belle flower, korean lilac and couple other shrubs.
we still have to paint, put up flower boxes, change light fixtures oh, and get a new garage door....I busted ours...
...Thank goodness for a nice husband who didn't even get fazed by my serious mess-up.
