I am pretty sure this picture is to large for the rules here so...this is a link to a photo of the new flower bed at the front of our home. We moved last summer and this yard needs a lot of help.

Just the outline has been desodded where the new flower bed is goin. Its really hard to get an idea as to how big that area really is. If it helps that rhodo is about 4 ft across and the birdbath is a big cement one.

We just purchase a saucer magnolia last night, a japanese maple, a 6.5 HP rear tine tiller grinnnn and saw a few more shrubs I would like to purchase. Have 43 pernnials in pots to put in, 40 daylilies I started indoors, 9 dahlias, 4 peonies, 50 plants or so started from seed and some other stuff i just had to buy waiting in bags..still nowhere near enough but a good start I think.

Hey Suzee,

That is going to be so fantastic when you get it all planted. That's quite a project you have on your hands.

Its the first of many. We have a huge boulder to the right of our home in a treeless area, wanting to put Japanese garden there with water garden, a veggie garden in the backyard (grass instead of moss would be nice too), a herb garden in the back beside the house and a flagstone patio with fire pit...not to mention landscaping around the current deck and building a base and deck for the hot tub.


Did I say i am NOT moving again? Good thing hubby is a gardener too

Wow,

I move into a house once. It was a fixer upper. My project list was 119 items long. My boyfriend was a carpenter and my dad is a pretty good handy man. It took us two years. If it required paying, digging, weeding, painting, sanding or filling it was my job. If it required plumbing or electrical it was dads. And if it required cutting or nailing it was Franks. He built me a solarium it was terrific. Next time I'm learning the electrical to go with the gardening. Dad can keep the plumbing uck. :p

Looks like you are starting with pretty much of a blank slate, so you ought to have room for all your new plants. Isn't it so much fun to figure out exactly where you want everything and to know that when it look just like you want it that you got it that way? grinnnn

Very Nice Suzee! Isn't it fun planning and getting to do it like you want?
We haven't been in our home very long...we downsized (I don't know what I was THINKING!!) and really dislike this house...it needed a LOT of help. We were going to start landscaping last year but hubby had some back problem...so we were going to do it this year. Now we can't because he has been off work so long...and we just can't afford it right now. But, I am trying to do something to help the front yard...but am having to work with what I already had...so it probably wont look "right" til next year when everything grows some.
Keep us posted as you get it started...I would love to see how you are going to lay it out...may have to "borrow" some of your ideas!
