We were finally able to start our front yard landscaping project this weekend. Our daughter came out, spent the night, and declared she wanted to be put to work! Well, who can say no to that!!!! Okay, then, we got to work!
Home Depot had Crape Myrtle trees on sale (regular $74, sale $49!!! – whoa, great deal!!), so we bought three. Two trees with white flowers, one with pink! Here’s a picture of a full-grown pink Crape Myrtle – isn’t it beautiful??
The trees are only about 6′ tall – which is good because they were still heavy!.
We measured across the yard and tried to make sure they would be evenly placed, and then Megan dug three huge holes. We dumped a bag of Miracle Grow soil in each, watered them good, and low and behold, we have landscaping!!! The trees have softened up the yard already, adding some much needed green.
The fence will be in soon, and we’ll start adding bushes around the perimeter for more color! I’ll keep you posted on our progress! I’d love your comments about what you would do to your hardscape if you had the chance to start from scratch!
Have a great day!
