We decided to yank out the 4 huge bushes in our tiny front garden, and start over. I was nervous/excited about the thought of a total overhaul, and in the end I'm so glad we went for it!
Here's the before:
I was covered in dirt, but totally satisfied! I planted a boxwood, another shrub (the green one on the left...I can't remember the name), 3 hosts, 10 geraniums (coral & pink), and some petunias that were on sale and matched perfectly. All in a (long) days work!
I love that it's so much more colourful, open, and inviting! I also planted a couple of window boxes that I got on sale. And I purchased a little cilantro plant! I'm so excited about the delicious thai dishes I have lined up to use it in. Any suggestions?
