This is the house we live in. It was built in 1900. It has really good bones. We have been really blessed to so far have only cosmetic changes that we have to make to it.
Unfortunately, the outside is just a MESS. A mess being an understatement here.EVERYTHING needs painted this summer- garage, fence and house.
The former owner repainted it just a few years ago but for some reason his paint reacted to something and it`s now all peeling off. So if you ever go past you`ll know it`s us by the “house with the peeling paint”.
These pics were taken l;ast summer when we were moving in. They were the only ones I had on file. It still looks mostly the same.
I found it to be SUCH a blessing to move in the fall- that way I had all winter to work on the inside, so I feel like that is at an ‘okay’ place now that`s it`spring and we need to get outside.
HERE is my dilemma. I almost lose sleep because I know so little about flowers, tips on arranging gardens, where to put what and when…
I AM SOOOO STRESSED.
See. When we first got married we lived in an upper level apartment- no yard. Then we lived in a house where it had shrubs and so I only did potted plants.
This was a little rock fountain. do to being a child safety hazard- we are tearing it out and putting in a little raised bed garden. Either with rocks or railroad ties around it.
We live right in the middle of town and so we need to be able to have some veggies somewhere.
A pretty nice open area. Some of it is “patiod” I`m not sure what it`s called. Some kind of fake stones. Right now it`s filthy, but could be pretty.
Anyways- having said all that- could ya`ll PLEASE AND I MEAN PLEASE send me wisdom on landscaping, what plants are cool when, gardening tip, mulching/edging news, ANYTHING remotely related to all this talk.
No piece of help from you will go unthank…ful…ized.
Yes, obviously that`s not a word.
But it should be.
Sorry, I don`t have time to add SSSs. Although I do have a nice stash to share right now… 🙂
