Our front yard has never been my super favorite. I like particular aspects at different times of year. We have a cherry blossom bush that is amazing in the spring. Not so much once the blooms turn to leaves and the bugs start munching. The fire bush is beautiful in the fall, until a storm comes through and knocks all the red leaves off. Plus, in the spring and summer it's just one more green thing.
The green is probably my #1 issue. I love me some green, but that's pretty much all we have. So I spent the winter dreaming how to change it. Then I made lists. Then I dreamed a little more. Then I decided I wanted to visualize how it would all look. Then I figured I should probably let my husband in on my plans. Sometimes I forget he has opinions...and good/helpful ones!
Here's our front porch before:
And we'll call this "In Progress":
I'm waiting on the pink jasmine to go on a trellis (which is to be purchased). And of course, there's the back yard, but that's a WHOLE other issue.
I also have some daffodils and tulip bulbs scattered around and those will need to get put somewhere, probably a larger planter somewhere.
