In keeping with the recent “gardening” theme that’s been taking over my blog, I thought I’d give you the full tour of our yard. Let’s start with the front!
I love these planters flanking the front door. I made them symmetrical, because I need to satisfy a bit of OCD. I used Spike Dracaena, bi-colored Petunias, Gomphrena, and some type of relative to the Hibiscus family. I forget the exact name. *Update: this last one is called a Flowering Maple
Our landscaping was put in last spring, and it has come back with force this year! Our porch is flanked by Boxwoods, Knockout Roses, and Japanese Yew (or at least some type of Yew). On the corner in the forefront, we’ve got additional Boxwoods and a Rose of Sharon tree.
The large planter on the porch is full of Asiatic Lilies. I think this may be the last year they’ll fit in this pot!
Rounding the corner, we’ve got a Snowberry Bush, Hydrangea, Peony (I don’t think it’s going to bloom this year… boooooo), and lastly, a Burning Bush. At the very end of the house, you can see our vegetable bed.
That concludes for our front yard tour! Thanks for joining us here at Two Purple Couches, and have a wonderful day!
Looks good. You can take some of the lilies out of that pot and plant them somewhere else.
Thank you! Yes, I’d love to plant some lilies in the yard somewhere!
Your front porch is adorable! Lookin’ good so far – and what I love most is that there’s so much room for you to add more of your own personality to it too. Can’t wait to see what other details you add along the way.
Thank you!! I have so many other ideas, guess I’ll have to pace myself 🙂
