When we moved in our yard was covered with snow! So we had no idea what we would find when spring came! We found lots of weeds and over grown plants. So one day I walked outside and pulled everything up except the little tree. Eric was less than thrilled with my work but he did agree that there was no rhyme or reason to the landscaping. The flower bed set empty for 2 weeks, and then our neighbors gave us a bunch of mulch. Once we laid the fresh mulch we decided we should add a couple plants and some flowers to add a little curb appeal to our house! This is not our ideal landscaping but plants are expensive so we settled for what was within our budget! We bought a couple zebra grasses, some hostas and a flat of petunias. We have been enjoying doing projects around the house together. We are both learning a lot about being home owners and how to work as a team and compromise!
