Before & After: Chris and Alyssa’s New Front Yard

before, house, landscape, yard, overgrown, front yard

When Chris and Alyssa closed on their house a few years ago, they were less than excited to be greeted by this jumble of overgrown shrubs and run of the mill river rock.  It made their new house feel unsightly and tired, and they couldn’t wait till it was gone! Choosing to venture down the DIY route, they were able to transform their yard into something they both love.

And what a difference it made! Adding a border and replacing the drab river rocks with a bright mulch, along with swapping the disorderly shrubs for a variety of smaller plants, they created a yard that enhanced the facade of their house by a landslide. Alyssa noted that the project took them a lot longer than they had originally set out for [heh, I know how *that* goes….] but the extra time spent was well worth it. I’d love to see what it looks like now that a few years have passed! Nice job, guys!  -erin

If you have a great garden related makeover project that you would like to share with Studio ‘g’ readers please send us pictures and tell us about it.

Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays!

I have been trying to sort out what the remainder of my 2012 year should entail…and playing into that is the most current of events.  I am quite frankly having trouble wanting to talk about much of anything here — it is partially the season (quiet winter) and it is mostly that I just want to put it all…

A Leafy Photoshoot & a Killer Bag.

Last week, in preparation for the next issue of Leaf Magazine, I worked a little photo shoot with Roanne Robbins (as the floral creator) and Lisa Aciukewicz (as photographer).  I thought it would be fun to share a few behind the scenes shots with you….as well as tell you about my newest toy! Here is…
