A Love/Hate Relationship

A few pictures of our yard all done with the new bark. You can't see it so well from these views, but there are some more detailed pictures below. We're glad to have it done!

One of my planters in front of the garage. I was so excited because these planters are actually plastic and only cost me $10 a piece. A little spray paint and viola!! I even got all the plants on clearance!! Nothing a little miracle grow can't help!!

We finally have our gate fixed!!!! Now it actually looks straight and it can withstand the crazy wind.

My potted plants by the front door. I really love arranging plants!

The front yard done with all the bark. We spent this summer laying down landscaping fabric, digging out sod, and spreading bark. We're really pleased with the results, but it was quite labor intensive!!!
Someday we'll be able to add some actual PLANTS :) Like I said, a love/hate relationship!!

I so know how you feel. Our front yard (or shall I say dirt) is going through the same thing. But everything looks amazing!

That is beautiful! I love it! The fence, the bark, the grass, the potted plants, it's all so beautiful! Seriously looks amazing. I think we have similar taste:)

Nice work. We have so much work to do on our yard it makes me sick. I love you plants. Any little thing in yard brings great satisfaction, don't you think?
