Making An Entrance – More Yard Projects

This project took about three days to do. First i had to pull up the white rocks that were there, then I had to plant the flowers and then I had to lay the edger rocks. I picked the flowers mostly because they are perennials (will come back year after year) and because I love the colors.

The two plants in the pot won’t come back year after year, but I LOVE the color. I figured, I can plant something new in the pots each year (annuals) for Spring, Summer and Fall. Two of the plants on the ground are not perennials, so I will have to dig them up and plant something else there next Spring. Here are the photos:

BEFORE:

READY FOR PLANTING:

Trip to Loews to pick up my supplies. My Dodge Dorango is perfect for lugging all my stuff around:

ALMOST DONE, ALL THE FLOWERS ARE PLANTED IN THE GROUND:

CLOSE UP OF THE POT. THESE PLANTS CAN LIVE INDOOR AND OUTDOOR. ONCE IT GETS TOO COLD, I’LL PROBABLY BRING THIS INSIDE.

LAID THE SCALLOPED EDGERS ALL BY MYSELF! I LOVE THE WAY IT TURNED OUT:

Now that’s what I call an entrance. There was some concrete buried deep under the dirt that interrupted the flow of the edgers, so I have to figure out something creative to do with that space. Will probably lay down some decorative brick or something to fix that.
