“The earth has yielded its increase;
God, our God, shall bless us”
Many of you have commented and have been interested in our landscaping project, so I wanted to give you an update! Last Wednesday, the crew arrived after lunch with a caravan of trucks, trailers, and equipment. They didn’t waste any time…they unloaded and got right to work! We can see progress and we are excited! Be sure to check out the other posts about our backyard project here:
How Does Your Garden Grow?
There are many decisions to be made concerning plants, flowers, grass…you know, all that “stuff” that goes into it. You could break the bank with all the great options, but we have to be reasonable with budget and maintenance! On Saturday, I made a quick trip to a nursery about sixty miles from home. I wanted to see some of the trees and plants that the landscaper recommended and look at decorative pieces for the garden!
I will be using two large pots (containers) in a green space! They had many to choose from!We Southern girls love our hydrangeas!We will be using limelights for sure!I really liked this bench, but it won’t fit into the budget!Hydrangeas…never met one I didn’t like! I have enjoyed a small herb garden for years. Now I will have more space-so I can add new varieties! Beautiful roses! …and I don’t have much success with them I will be planting perennials and annuals! I have always liked box woods…the basic and quintessential shrub! Ahh…the smell of gardenias! Lorapetalum provides relief from all the green with their burgundy leaves!
All of your suggestions and comments have been most helpful! We can hardly wait to see the finished project…and share it with you, our faithful readers! Who knows…we might just have a patio party when it’s all said and done! Thank you for joining us in our everyday living!
