Side Yard Makeover

If you haven't noticed, Joey and I tend to do a lot of yard work and landscaping in our free time. I don't know that we would do this much if we had purchased a used home that already had landscaping in place but, our new home was just bare bones and has needed lots of TLC in the garden department. We have a really longgggg house and the side of it was always bothering me. It felt so boring with just grass going down to the fence so I decided to spice it up a bit with a wavy mulch border and some azaleas, nandias and monkey grass. We will add flowers next year but, since the season is nearing an end here it would be a waste. I am sooooo very happy with the results. It is simple, low maintenance and yet very pleasing to the eye and makes me smile every time I walk to our gate now. Oh, the simple things in life. Joey and I worked so hard on this as usual and can I just say that I am so thankful that my husband loves yard work as much as I do. These things would never get done if I didn't have his muscles and energy. He's amazing! Next garden project....the backyard. It is completely bare aside from a nice green lawn so we have a blank slate to work with. to be continued....
