It seems like forever since I've been here! It's been a pretty busy Spring...lots of yard work to do. All my trees got trimmed up for the season & my roses have been blooming like crazy.
Over Memorial weekend I finally addressed some issues with the front yard. I finally got rid of the last 2 of the boxwood bushes next to my porch steps! Jeez I hated those things. The more the humidity rose, the worse those things smelled!
Offered them on Freecycle & a guy came with his truck & a tow chain! See Ya!!
All the extra digging on the right is from the drain pipe in the yard for the downspout.
It had collapsed & it was time to get this fixed...
So the digging began....
My neighbor had some extra stone in his back yard...perfect to assist in some drainage
Just enough stone under the pipe....
And all I need now is some seed.
Any suggestions on what to put in front of the porch?? Left side gets sun in the late afternoon...right side is shaded by the tree all day. Hmmm....what will grow in both? I don't want another bush type thing, and I prefer a perennial.
