My Front Yard Perennial Garden in Ontario
About five years ago, we decided to replace our front lawn with a perennial garden. Our yard is quite shady, and growing grass was a constant struggle.
The new front yard garden is filled with low maintenance perennials such as daylilies, hostas, hydrangeas, coneflowers and various ground covers.
It is so much more fun to take care of than our old front lawn - and the neighbours, butterflies and bees certainly enjoy it more too!
