Bought Home, Which Was Quite Bland-looking
Then I added a bit of color.
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.
