front yard makeover: part 2.

We’re nearing the end of our front yard project, so I thought it was time for another update! As a reminder, this is where we started.

All the stone has now been completed. Isn’t it beautiful?? There’s nothing like natural stacked stone. This bed will look amazing when the weather cools off a bit and we fill it with pansies!

A little detail of the gorgeous stacked-ness from the side:

The pond is looking much better with plants surrounding it. Don’t worry, Chad is going to be cleaning up those rocks to cover the ugly black plastic.

We now have stone surrounding the bed next to the driveway as well.

Since the yard slopes, the stone is much higher near the street. I could just look at this all day!

The plants have started going in on the side of the house next to the pond. You can see the new stone bed from this angle too. Sorry for the contrasty-light photos. I was in a hurry to document this!

Front Yard Makeover (7)

The black-eyed Susans and purple coneflowers should be going in today. You can see where they have been temporarily laid out next to the riverbed. Can’t wait for this part!

Stay tuned for the final reveal! I think we’re on schedule to finish up today!

Here’s to progress. And plants. And natural stacked stone. Sigh. Cheers!
