Before & After: Heather’s Front Yard Makeover

before, exterior, front yard, landscape, plain, grass,I spent a pretty good heap of time out in the yard today and I’m actually feeling quite good about how far I got [not the usual case…]. While I was removing a never ending sea of river rocks I remembered that today is Before and After day on Studio ‘g’ and I started to think about how much easier it will be to find content now that everybody can finally be out in their yard again! Gah, it’s about time. Anyway, this particular transformation has taken place over the last 2 years and it’s come a long way! Heather from Just a Girl with a Hammer is always up to something and I was pretty amped to see that she took a new photo of her front yard progress last week.

In addition to painting, Heather ripped out all the grass in her front yard and replaced it with perennials. And as of a few days ago, it looks like this:

after, exterior, landscape, curb appeal


Such a huge difference, yeah? She mentioned that she’ll probably end up moving some of this later in the year because she’s worried about there being too many plants, but I think for now it looks pretty great. I can’t wait to see her update in a year from now…it’s always so much fun to watch yards transform! -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.
