LANDSCAPING MAKEOVER











 







 




New landscape edging went in yesterday in the front and both sides of the house. We pulled out all the white stones that were breaking and falling apart. We put the stone in when we moved in the house 6 1/2 yrs ago. We were very disappointed with how it was not holding up. Our neighbors just had this edging put in a couple of weeks ago and we loved it. It's stamped concrete! This stuff is going no where. This will be a lot easier to trim around and hopefully keep out the weeds better than the old stuff.
My only complaint about the new edging is how much further they had to come out. I've gained almost a foot in front which leaves kind of a weird blank area up front. I'm going to have a lot of light and decorative rock rearranging to do. Maybe some new phlox.
I'll post pics off the edging again after we get everything all cleaned up.
 


















We added another veggie box this year to the back yard.

These little pathways look so nice !! And they always give such a sense of "tidiness" ! Love it !!
