This weekend was supposed to be easy, this weekend was supposed to be a walk in the park…..alas, Dave and I don’t roll that way. 1 1/2″ gravel was delivered on Friday for the front garden, with the idea to load up the front garden […]
In the spirit of outdoor improvement, I have moved from the back to the front. The backyard improvements have gone so well, that I decided to tackle the yucky front entry. Here is a long distance shot. There has not been very many nice spring days yet, so very few of my plants have begun blooming. It looks rather desolate with my front garden torn all apart (I’ll get to that soon).

The door that the house currently has, was an addition from the previous owners. I wanted to find something that would be more true to the house itself (but sneaking in some mid-century modern) …….more to come on that.
Here is a better shot of the work in progress front entry…….I have the slats up to ensure that the short ones don’t fall off. There is still a larger drop off (larger than I am comfortable with) on the front left side – I will be using those half barrels as planters on the high side.
Next up – finishing the front door and the front garden!
