Deronda's front yard before and after.

Tn. (6)
7,354 (248)

We put a roof on the porch, removed the old Iron railing and outdoor carpet then tiled the floor. Removed the old sidwalk and created a path walkway. Dug out 12'x 60' feet of the front lawn and made a front parking area. Created a front yard cottage garden and a side yard memory garden. From fall 2004 to summer 2008.

And your gardens are leaping...I look forward to your Spring garden tours."
