Not only have we had a lot of updates and changes to make to the inside of our house but there are many changes we plan to make to the outside as well, primarily in regards to landscaping. Because of what Kristian does for a living and the people he's worked/friends with we have a great plan for both the front and back of our house and thanks to some hook ups we should be able to get everything for relatively inexpensive.
However we need to get our plans approved through the HOA and then we can get started hopefully in May with all the landscaping. In the meantime our house was looking pretty drab and boring so this past weekend
we Kristian went to Home Depot and bought some plants to help brighten things up a bit. I leave all the planting/flowers/landscaping to him, not only because it's part of his job but also because I can't even keep a cactus alive.
There's still a lot to be done but the small additions already make the place look better from the outside.
Here's the front doorway. I LOVE our red door (though it needs to be repainted) so I think having the red flowers in the blue pot really help bring out the colors in the house.
Couldn't tell you what these flowers are called. But I like them.
He also potted some flowers and herbs to keep on both the upper and lower decks in the back.
It's amazing what a few plants can really do to the outside of a house. I can't wait to get all the landscaping done and add a tree or two out front.
Have you planted any flowers this season?
