Curb appeal was lacking, I thought. So I wanted to dress it up a bit.

I created a larger flower bed in front and outlined it with white border bricks. I also outlined the oak tree and put a few flowers in there.

this is the extended flower bed. Had to fill in with several cubic feet of dirt.

Border around tree as a guide for where I wanted the white brick.

Another shot of the front flower bed. I extended it out a full foot and a half.

Removed grass on side of the house. Moved gate to the back of the house. I outlined the rock area with white bricks as well. I have pavers laid out in the stones.....as stepping stones. Need to get a pic of that.

Standing at the back of the house, you can see the gate was all the way up at the front part of the house. I wanted the side of my home exposed to the street. It makes the house appear a bit larger; moving the gate to the back of the house.

Suggested materials for this project:

  • Shovel, rake, pick  (Lowes)
  • White bricks, mulch, dirt, sand  (Lowes)

      You did a great job. I do have on suggestion, cut those shrubs back they are a little to over powering at their current size, cut them back and make them round individual shrubs instead of a hedge row. Just my opinion.
