Garden Makeover #1 – When we moved to our new home last August, this is how the tiered garden looked. I immediately dug in and started transforming this ugly mess. I began the makeover by digging out weeds, ditch lilies, weeds, lily of the valley, weeds – you get the picture. It makes me tired just looking at it.
Here’s another angle of the mess. We had the triple trunk ash tree cut down, along with several others.
I’m making progress. I couldn’t even tell this was a tiered bed and who knew all those lovely field stones were there. I love rocks almost as much as I love flowers. I uncovered a few other treasures besides the rocks- asiatic lilies and strawberries.
Here she is all cleaned up and pretty. I planted lots of perennials – several different varieties of coneflower, asiatic lilies, irises, yarrow, daylilies and many more. I also stuck in a few annuals here and there. I’m sure I’ll be moving plants around over the years striving for perfection, which we all know doesn’t happen in a perennial garden.
Here’s another view a few weeks later. Things are filling in and I’m starting to see more color.
This tiered perennial bed is just one area that I have made over in our yard. In the following weeks and years, I will be sharing more garden makeovers. Looking at these pictures reminds me to take more of the progress, because it does my soul and weary body good to see what I’ve accomplished.
Thanks for stopping by today! I do appreciate comments, so please take a minute and leave one. Also, if you haven’t done so already, subscribe to email updates, if you’re interested in following my journey of yard makeovers.
I’m linking up with Pam’s Gardens Galore Link-Up Party today. Thanks Pam for hosting!
