Front Yard Transformation

Our new front yard consists of pine trees, rocks and something that eventually turned green and resembles grass. We do live "in the woods" so we aren't looking to have a perfectly manicured front yard. We do however want to create a warm and welcoming entrance to our home. Here's our journey.

1 of 8: March 2012 this is our front yard from our house. EEEKKK!!!

2 of 8: March 2012 this is your view apon turning into our drive..not welcoming.

3 of 8: The front of our house had young evergreen bushes. We added a couple of hydrangea. Blue Cassel, the first bloomed with beautiful HUGE lace cap in purple and fading to blue/green. The second bloomed magenta, which I loathe, so we are playing with the ph to try and adjust that color.

4 of 8: July 2012 Eventually our "grass" turned a nice shade of green. My husband is on grass duty and I am on flower/garden duty.

5 of 8: We moved large stones to each side of the end of our drive and threw a couple of hosta from our back yard to create a bit of free appeal.

6 of 8: Left side garden is filled with hosta. My plan is to make this my daisey garden and have it filled with a sea of white 3 seasons. I've already started with a few hand-me-down plants.

7 of 8: Front of the house is filled with young shrubs. The only plan here is to watch them grow and add a bit of color with hydrangea.
