Are you also gardening? Collecting soil and mud up to your "knickers" like me and these wise words came from a lovely woman Debra from Acquired Objects Blog, and made me laugh until I started planting and realized I was so muddy and it was not funny!
According to the Better Homes & Gardens magazine, city lot and its' front yard should be well landscaped to look modern and up to date. Well, I only found out this opinion after I had significantly reduced the amount of sod and nothingness from our front yard and replaced it extensively with plants and new landscape.
I felt a bit overwhelmed with my own work that I had to sink my own confusion with what I like and what looks good! And to my liking ... I found out I am on the right track. Flat green lawn with a bit of foundation planting is not the way to go these days, it is not enough, it is boring...smiles.
Naturaly I have a feel for what looks good but putting it into words, I appreciate the BETTER HOMES magazine putting it into words as a very important tip: "make sure you repeat an element to bring continuity and keep your garden from looking helter-skelter..."
I am really glad with what I did and will show you some of my inspirations and a peek at our own yard but I will show you the complete project when we are done with new railings and fence installation this week, very exciting.
Here is a peek!
Evergreens to keep some green in winter and to create continuity.
Boxwood to line the pathway and also have greenery in winter.
Bushes and evergreens also for continuity.
I also have roses and hydrangeas! For Beauty and won't show you now!
More to come....
Here is those lovely gardens I saved on my Ipad to keep inspired:
