Some Curb Appeal Please

          Like was mentioned in my birthday post we had some professionals come in to give our home some curb appeal.   We have tried to be creative and have changed the shape of the plant beds in the front but, it seems to always look boring.  Now remember we have been neglecting the house a lot lately so the before pictures have “cough, cough” plants from the fall in them.  Do not judge!


BEFORE:  At this point the Landscape people had already been and sprayed plant killer, so things had begun to turn a shade of brown.

Drum Roll Please……THE AFTER:

So what do you think?  We love it, the butterflies love it, the birds love it,  and even Sadie loves to go and smell the flowers.  Too bad Sadie is scared of the camera and runs as soon as she sees it because, it’s sweet to see her sniffing away!  One thing I am hoping though is that the deer don’t love it because,  I will be fiercely mad if they come in and snack on our new landscape.  


Happy 4th Everyone!!!



  1. oooo I love it!!! It looks awesome and I like the tree by the right side of the house AND the big truck :) butterflies are so fun to have in the yard! Sadie will love them.

  2. Lauren, your yard looks so good!!! I would be plum shamed if you saw what was left of my fall yard right now ;) It's pitiful, but seeing your yard looking so good inspires me to get back on it!
