Country Garden Inspirations From

With the weather finally starting to turn a little more spring-like, it is time to head outside and do a little lot of landscaping in our much-neglected back yard. What used to be described as a backyard “oasis”, is now nothing more than a large brown patch of what used to be grass, overgrown flower beds and shrubs and a muddied, empty pond.
You've heard "the grass is always greener in another man's yard", right? Well, in this case it is certainly true! My poor yard has seen better days, and is in dire need of an inspired makeover! So, I turned to for country garden photos to use as a jumping off point for my back yard remodel.
Peonies are one of my favorite flowers-lush blooms and fragrance, and they last for many months in the Northeast!
I am going to need a potting shed in order to create my gardening magic, and this one fits the bill! It is large enough to hold pots and baskets and watering cans- just what I need to get started!
