Pictures of the yard
ok so here are some pictures of my yard.
In these pictures you can see the yard pre-deck. The shed is on the wall you are looking at in the first picture.
I planted 3 hydrangeas down the front side of the deck. I'm trying to accommodate my husbands wishes to not use lattice under the deck. So I figure I will cover it up with pretty bushes.
This is the shed that is next to the deck. The thin bed between the walk way and the wall is all cleaned out now as well. I want to plant a climbing something, so any ideas on that are welcome. It gets full sun. The little tree was a pecan but i had my hubby rip it out, because i didn't want root problems that close to the house. I just planted a "Loropetalum" but i didn't pay attention to how big it was before i planted so i have a feeling it's 15 ft size will definitely outgrow that little space. I know "DUH"
These two pictures are of the tulip poplar bed before and after. Yes thats the same tree between the small shed and the swing. I planted hostas, ferns and just recently a bunch of bulbs. I have more ferns to plant. But I am holding off to see what it looks like next spring once the hostas and ferns fill out, and the bulbs come in.
We are working on the lawn to get rid of weeds and fill in all the blank spots. But i have a great vision.
HOpe you all enjoy my story, and if you have any suggestions, please throw them out.
My next blog will be picks of the deck now and from different angles.

That's quite a large yard to work with, you are very fortunate indeed :) The established trees really embellish it also.
Faun that is a huge yard, oh the gardens you can create in one that size.
Hey I love the swing bench you have Faun!! Boy how I'd love to have a garden the size of yours. I really like the poplar bed you've created underneath the tree - it's going to look even better once all the plants have matured.
Great sized yard Faun! Oh and I just love that swing too!
Thanks guys, I love all the support. That swing has been in my husbands family for a good while, although the wood has been changed out the metal and memories are still intacted. My step-daughter is 16 now but it wasn't too long ago she would sit out there and swing for hours, if she was feeling down or just needed time to herself.
