Our Landscape Plans

When we moved into our house, our yard was completely landscaped and that was part of the reason we fell in love with this house. That being said having a fully landscaped yard, no green thumb, and a 2 year old makes for a challenging up-keeping task. Five years of living with this yard and we still don't know what certain plants are or how they should be taken care of. This month we have decided to eliminate certain parts and replace other parts with low maintenance plants. Also, the garden is quite time consuming with hours almost every weekend spent weeding. But to be honest, part of our problem is that we don't spend hours weeding every weekend so we need to reduce weed production. We want to enjoy our yard not dread going outside because it reminds us of how much work we have to do.

Since the snow has just melted, we are in the planning stage. So I thought I would share some of our
inspiration. Disclaimer: Some these pictures are purely inspirational because we have a small budget for this transformation. Lots of wood and natural stone = $$$.

Stay tuned to see how we transform our yard.

Does your yard overwhelm you?
