Before & After: Abby and Adam’s Backyard Bliss

backyard, fence, new, makeover, transformation, before and after

Whenever Abby or Adam looked into their backyard, they were greeted by a hideous rotted wood fence that was far from any sort of privacy shield. Being new homeowners, they were big on ambition and change, and also slightly motivated by their neighbor’s two-tone, half painted house. To their neighbor’s defense, I too am sporting a two-tone house, and I am less than proud of going through another winter this way…..but you know how things go. Ahem, at any rate, the two of them got to work and soon they were well on their way to the backyard they had envisioned.

After installing a new fence and hauling 7 yards of crushed rock, their backyard began to resemble a space that was a little more welcoming. They built a new fire pit and added a few places to relax, which can be seen from other angles of the yard over on their blog. They planted some flowers and helped their grass along, and soon enough they had yard they could be proud of. Nice job, Abby and Adam! I’m always a fan of backyard makeovers that are done on a budget. -erin

50 Natives: Ohio – Salix Discolor (Pussy Willow)

Spring has sprung (finally!). Happy Spring!! One of the earliest harbingers of the season is the arrival of pussy willows in the flower stalls. I think it is perfect time of year to feature Salix discolor as a native. Since Michelle of Auntie Thesis is in Ohio and she commented on our giveaway that the…

Before & After: Jacquie’s Silver Lake Garden

I’m so impressed with Jacquie’s Garden makeover.  It was originally featured over on Apartment Therapy, but it is so great, I have to share it more detail here. From Jacquie:  My outside space is quite small at about 500 square feet. When I bought my house it was just a concrete slab, poorly installed red…
