You don’t realize how important landscaping is until you don’t have any…..
Dirt…… Stickers….. Mud…… Weeds…… Lots of Grasshoppers……is what our yard is full of. Eww.
Seriously I want to know where all these grasshoppers are coming from?? I literally found one jumping in my car today and I didn’t have any windows open or anything. Fishy……
Anyways, good landscaping can really take your house to the next level.
Right before we moved Matt and I put some money into our backyard. We put in 2 big flower beds (well lets be real… I was 8 months pregnant so Matt dug the flower beds, put up a border and planted the plants. But I did put the plants were I wanted them so I helped a little! ), a nice walkway, and some new trees.
And holy cow! Our backyard looked SOOOOOOOOOO much better.
Then we moved 2 months later.
At least we got to enjoy it for a while I guess.
Since I just have a dirt filled, grasshopper infested yard to look at as of now I wanted to brighten up our porch with some plants.
I got this hydrangea plant from: http://www.naturehills.com/grateful-red-hydrangea
I wanted something unique and I LOVE hydrangeas. I am always seeing them in magazines and on Pinterest and I think they are so pretty.
They shipped it to me and this is how it came inside a larger box:
So pretty… it looks like a present ready to be opened
What I LOVED was it came with these instructions on how to take care of it. Good for people like me who don’t know a whole lot what they’re doing in the plant/garden department.
Since I have no yard I planted it in this old metal bucket I bought at a garage sale and later when we get a yard I will transplant it
Look at this awesome bench I scored for only $25
I love it and am considering painting it…. but I don’t know yet…..
It’s nice to have a little color on the porch now.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a safe weekend!
