Curb Appeal

Thursday, 3 May 2012

My parents are coming into town this evening and to prepare for their visit, I did a bit of work outside to improve curb appeal. Above is the "before" picture. I dug up the rocks in the front beds, lined them with plastic again and edged them with slate rocks found on my property. (Do notice Lily the cat directing my actions from the front door.)

Here's the "after" picture:

My vision was to extend the flower bed so I could add an iron bench, table for aesthetic purposes and set out a potted geranium and Boston fern. I like how it turned out. The red mulch matches the paint color of the door. 

Now... back to school work. My major 615 research paper is due TODAY.

Charming! It's amazing how a few little things can make such a difference.
