New flower beds taking shape!

This has been a long time coming if you know us! I really need to do a post with pics of our house from the past and how far we've come. Anyways..... we found out that in our city you can get free mulch! So we drove the ol' pickup to the transfer station and they dumped A LOT of mulch in to the bed. Oh forgot to mention it was raining, yep...

Here is a before pic as the hubby was putting up the new skirting, there are plans for new siding sometime later this summer :)

And the after....
We got the Juniper Cypress trees from the flea market for $10 each, larger flower pots $9 each at Big Lots, flowers so far from Wal-mart $6, mulch and large rocks were free!

No way can you see it but I have a very small rose bush that I transplanted from a sprout of one we had dug up. Eventually this is going to be filled with shrubs, plants and flowers.

We still have a bunch of rocks to move and finish the right side but I'm very happy and ready to plant like crazy! Soon there will be a new rock walkway! I'll be painting the door black and stenciling our house number on it, that with new siding is going to look awesome! Can't wait!

  1. Starting to look really good! Can't wait to see what it will look like all finished up! And to see the before pics!!!

  2. That looks great! I've been trying to figure out what to do with my front yard...I might have to try something like this! Love the stones, and how neatly they trim the mulch. Great job! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Looks like you are on your way. Be thankful for the free mulch, in my city we have to buy it!
