Before and After: Brooklyn Garden

8/31/2009

I hope this before and after will inspire some heavy duty DIY.  This project is not for the light hearted, but these homeowners did a terrific job of transforming their space from dismal and dreary to lively and pretty all by themselves.

They had to remove and haul out a lot concrete, but with some planning, they were able to salvage some of it too and cut a new arc in it to create a beautiful planting area.

I think these guys did a great job of mixing up materials to make an interesting pattern in the patio.

I think that their plan to create two separate garden rooms was successful.  And I really like the textural planting that uses a good amount of dark leaved plants, which really pop with the white pergola.

    Hi Rochelle, how are you? Just dropping by and enjoying your blog! This garden transformation is fantastic and so inspiring! I like the pergola and the plant selection too. I just got a quote on some paving for the backyard and it was $10,000 AUD!!! If you can do the paving yourself like this lady did, you can save soooo much money. Wini
