In a neighborhood of highly manicured yards, apparently my yard leaves a little to be desired. I have that house.
When we moved in, our neighbor from across the street came over to introduce himself while I was pulling up weeds (which in a past life I never thought I would ever say) and he made the comment he couldn’t wait to see what I had in store for the yard.
I guess that’s what one calls a subtle hint.
Which led me to question, what did I have in store? My original answer was grass. Which it conveniently already had.
But since, I’ve realized the error in my ways and have tried to get a little more landscape savvy. Honestly, it’s a lot of work, kind of like being more ‘install your own tile savvy’ is.
So I started small.
I have a one foot circumference around the mailbox that was filled in with dirt (I guess I really did have a little work to do…) which is now a beautiful utopia of Lowes’ brightest flower assortment.
We live on a double lot, so in the grand scheme of things a one foot circumference maybe didn’t make quite the impact I’m looking for.
But, like I said it’s a start. Baby flower steps.
