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

  1. I must have missed the “makeover” part. A couple of plastic flamingos, 2 chairs and some gravel? Really?

Inspired by: French Garden Lighting

Who knew that putting well dressed french kids in magazine shots for outdoor light features would hook line and sink me? There were many more photos in this holiday spread from french magazine Champagne Decoration but these few featured some great garden lights that really caught my eye.  And, as I tracked down the sources…

Before & After: Bruce John Riddell’s Maine Slope

I simply adore Bruce John Riddell’s work.  His office is in Bar Harbor, Maine and they do the most amazingly beautiful natural landscapes.   This terraced slope is a beautiful work of art both in planting selections and in the stones used to sculpt the hillside.  Creating a cultivated version of nature itself in this already…

Daily Garden: Nancy’s Potted Garden

I love this idea for a small garden.  Forget laying out beds and locking yourself into an ‘on the ground’ design.  Just brick it over and buy a whole mess of terracotta pots and re-arrange to your hearts content. all images by gabagoo
