We finally got the landscaping done at the front of the house! It took us a while to decide which bushes/shrubs/flowers to plant, there are SO many choices. We already had day lilies planted in the front row, so we kept those. We also got a butterfly bush, which is on the left, if you are looking at the front of the house. Two white wings peony bushes, behind them, a foxglove. In the middle towards the right is a Japanese barberry and on the right next to the walkway 3 salvia (may night) flowers. Along the back, behind the butterfly bush, fox glove and salvias we planted 3 feather reed grasses. Around the light pole we brought in 3 rocks and then planted clusters of ornamental glasses.
We also put concrete planters with begonias in them on each side of the front door. On each side of the garage we planted Japanese holly (sky pencil).
We are both so glad to be done with this outdoor project! (we still have to paint the front porch though) It will be nice to spend our one day off together doing something other than working outside all day. I am sure Dylan would agree too!
