Thanks to everyone

I just wanted to post these pictures to show how much my garden has changed and to thank everyone who gave me advice. Thanks again and God Bless, Brian.

OH BRIAN!

The first two things that jump out at me as creating major curb appeal are the hanging baskets! So welcoming. The second thing that grabbed my attention was the long rectangular planter you must have made to size on the knee wall in front of your door. That really looks awesome and admittedly is my favorite addition to your front yard.

I've made some borders before and I can see you've got one that wasn't created in a day so to speak. Looks really great and matches the brick to your home quite nicely I might add. I take it you slept well a few nights after building that!

You've spent an incredible amount of time decking out the front of your home! You've done remarkably well. Have any of your neighbors commented on how nice it looks out front? If I had a neighbor who put that kind of sweat labor into their front yard I'd be knocking on their front door telling them what a good job they did.

Sooooooooooooooo, when do you move around to the back yard? Just kidding. I'm sure you'll get there sooner or later and no great rush.

Just because you asked here are some pictures of my backyard, there was a 18 foot rond pool there three weeks ago. Oh and by the way the cedar planter I built for the front was your idea, thanks again and God Bless.

Yay for me! I finally came up with a good design idea that actually looked good when somebody used it! That's a first!

Ohhhhhhhh, shade gardening! My favorite kinda gardening! This is going to be fun. I am getting this visual of gently arching Solomon's Seal companion planted with some native spring ephemerals along that one fence. So many ideas for plants for a backyard like that.

Have you ever thought of buying a little package kit type water fountain deal? I see a spot on the gravel where one might fit nicely and I love the sound of water. Around here we have some really attractive box lots of water fountains that can be picked up for around $150. The other thought would be a bird bath. Something simple lined but still classy looking.

This is gonna be fun. I so loooooooooove spending other people's money!
