Secret Garden Remodel
After “discussing” it all morning, I think we finally agree how we’re going to improve the front yard. To start we’re going to turn the grass patch on the right into an oval — giving me a larger shade garden space under the magnolia (tulip tree). Then, we’re going to remove the small hedge and cement pathway leading to the front door. Instead of the rigid cement pathway I’d like to replace it with large circular stones that I haven’t found yet – but will. I also plan to move around a lot of the plants in the garden on the left.
So the rest of the house matches the new front door, we’re going to add a little brown accent to the inside of our window frames. I hear on these older houses you should really have three colors: your main house color, trim and accent color. We haven’t added our accent color yet .
Now, to figure out where I’m going to plant all those Japanese Holly I’ll be digging up along the front path…
I’ll keep you posted on our progress. We plan to remodel the back yard next to add a patio and more garden space.
