Every Home Needs Curb Appeal!

After building our chicken coop I decided every home needs curb appeal!
The chicken coop before a little landscaping
I dug up all the grass and added fresh garden soil. Planted some bulbs - to bloom later
A little mulch, white rock and some blue aquarium rocks to make a river, a little bridge, bistro set and shells to make a river area
I glued moss to a pot and added a door in the front, planted some cactus to each side
Brought the rock over to the area to the left of the Whirling butterfly bush and added a fairy house, more aquarium rock, some mini chickens "drinking" the cool water :-)
The Lazy A Hens now have a landscaped yard
Added some stepping stones for a walkway to the door, a blue butterfly bush and mulch and added log landscape brick to "block" the area in and one new home has been landscaped.
Suggested materials:
  • Mulch, marble rock, stepping stones, landscaping bricks   (Ace Hardware)
  • Chicken coop and hens   (Tractor Supply)
  • Fairy garden supplies   (Hobby Lobby)

    This is so cute. I'd love to have the plans for your coop. Do you know where I can find them, please?

    Can you let your chickens out to "free range" around this?
