Before & After: A Small Seattle Garden Grows to New Heights

corner, before, seattle, garden, dirt, makeover

I found this sweet little Seattle garden a few weeks ago over on the beautiful Northwest Botanicals website while combing the internet for some front yard landscaping ideas. It’s a small corner garden that started out with some scraggly plants slung over a bed of dirt and gravel, and it has evolved into a corner that’s quite charming. Of course, I now that I found this one I want my very own version, but I don’t think that will be happening any time soon.

It’s a pretty huge improvement for such a tiny space, yeah? This photo was taken 2 years after the first one and I love how it came together! I’m really digging how the fence has taken on tone that’s a bit weathered– I think it makes for a great, subtle backdrop for a vibrant group of plants.  And since I’m always a sucker for adding height to walls or ledges with a couple pretty container plants, I’m a pretty big fan of that brick wall.

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…

Cairns for the Garden

Before & After: A New Backyard for an Urban Homestead

When I saw the “before” shot of this cozy backyard, I knew the transformation had to be good. I found the makeover on a blog called The Urban Self-Suffiicientist and the owner said that their main goal was to provide better drainage and give their dogs a place to run around without getting super muddy….
