I told y’all on Tuesday that I was going to write about my green thumb woes (click here to read the warning.)
Background info on my house:
It sat in foreclosure for at least a year before we put an offer on it. So NOTHING was done anything in or outside of the house. The walls were primary yellow & green (ick!) We painted the entire inside of the house & after that it was move-in ready.
We moved in on May 2, 2009, I’m HUGE HUGE preggo at this point & in grad school still (made a 4.0 that semester too) needless to say we didn’t have time to do anything then. On May 21 a cousin of mine & I went out to the flower bed & dug up lots & lots & lots of weeds, & at 7 am on the 22nd, I went into labor. Forty-three and a half hours later Logan was born & all house projects were put on hold….FOREVER! ha Okay, just for a year….
So, here we are almost to the anniversary of our move in date & we now have the time, money, & energy to focus on the flower bed (A lady in the neighborhood out walking told me she couldn’t wait for us to do something with it–I did almost slap her, but whatever…)
Things we are doing:
1. Getting rid of all the weeds (obviously)
2. Pulling up all the red border (did that yesterday) & the metal trim in the front (did that yesterday too)
3. Pulled up all the bulbs that the previous owners had planted (did that yesterday)
4. Putting down new paver stones! Can’t wait!
5. Getting rid of all the garden rock
6. Pouring down new mulch
I would love to put in flowers & some extra color, pull out all the bushes & start over from scratch (I HATE our yellow bushes & I DESPISE our boxwoods!) But I’m going to have to keep it simple, because let’s face it, I’m not a professional here.
Don’t judge me on the pics peeps! And I’ll definitely be putting up more pictures as things progress!!! I seriously can NOT wait to no longer
be the reason home values are tanking have the worst front yard on the block! hahaha
