Our landscaper thought we went crazy!
I have just cleared my front garden. We removed all lawn so we will have WAY more room for planting beds. My hope is to add a conifer section (probably small, dwarf or minis mostly) . An herb section, a fairy garden, so many possibilities.. My front yard is on the north side of the house. The 10 feet right up against the house is always shady but the rest bakes in the summer.
Here is my yard a couple of summers ago,
And here it is as of this morning, that is a wide gravel path meandering through the front.
And a view from the front stoop facing out,
I'm just looking for suggestions and ideas if anyone has thoughts.
Oh, and when all was said and done our landscaper loved it!
We live on 12 acres in Milton, so we actually have plenty of grass to maintain on the rest of the property.
