Our Yard

Join Southern Hospitality's Garden Party today!

My wonderful husband has been working hard on our yard to make it an oasis for us and our family. He'd do a little and then change a few things and add some more. We still are trying to decide on whether or not to get a fence, but I think we have it the way we want it....at least for now!

I so wish we had some before pics to show you. There was nothing in the back yard and only holly bushes in the front. I need to take some more pics once everything is in bloom, but I wanted to brag on my hubby a little now for all his hard work!


The front:



We plant pansies in the fall and begonias in the spring. These look a little beat down from all the rain we've been getting!



The Back deck and yard:

My new patio set !! I picture a lot of summer dinners out here!



He alternated knock out rose bushes with a small evergreen around the deck.


A close up of the knock out roses in the back yard.


Before long, these will bloom into my favorite flower- hydrangea!!! I can't wait to cut some of those babies and bring them inside! We lined the back of the house with these.

Beautiful! I really like the deck. Also, the way you incorporated the play structure with the mulch was a great idea.

Your home and landscaping look really nice.
I really like the childrens play area. A nice soft place to land.

HI, Vanessa, your hubby did a great job. I know how hard it is to get started on a garden & mine is still a work in progress too. It's taken me 3 years to get it where it is now & there are many ugly spots left to conquer. Thanks for joining the party!
