Before & After: Shephard’s Vibrant Los Angeles Hang Out

side yard, before, bright, los angeles, shephard's alley, remake,

I am so in love with this before & after and super excited to share it with you guys! Yes- this photo is really the before shot and when I saw it over on Shephard’s blog, I thought maybe I missed the before photo. I mean, come on…how often do you come across a yard that’s already awesome transition into something even more spectacular? Hardly ever. It’s usually old cracked patios or crunchy dead grass or gardens that are beyond parched being made over. Not yards that already have a sweet path snaking through plush, vibrant plantings, leading back towards a cute little corner shed. But, if you’re ready for it, click through to see what this space looks like after the renovation.

Yeah….pretty sweet, isn’t it? I really like how that ocean blue fire glass makes the area feel cool and serene, and that wrap-around bench is amazing. But really, everything about it is fantastic, and it even looks relatively easy to maintain. If this was my place, I’d be out there sipping mojitos and listening to music with friends just about every night. Check out the rest of the yard over at Shephard’s blog. The water and lighting features are pretty impressive. -erin

Cicada Summer Coming

Cicada Summer Coming

I’ve got a little theme going today.  It’s about Cicada’s and all things related…. I read an interesting article on the NPR website over the weekend about how the Cicadas are coming to the East Coast this summer.  Scientists are looking to crowdsource information about their emergence and you can help by building your own cicada sensor. Cicada emergence…
