That picture was from right after I moved in. It got a little rough out there. Here you go ...
So, I took a few hours on a Sunday, a handful of garbage bags and got down and dirty and cleaned up the space. I bought three bags of black mulch from Home Depot, a new hose and nozzle (the hose that was here was in bad bad shape) and some cutters and pruners. I weeded between the bricks, weeded the beds, pruned the bushes, made little beds of mulch and gave the whole space new life. Here it is now.
I still have some work to do. I need to hang the hose holder and hose, clean and put a fresh coat of white paint on the Adirondacks, clean the bricks with the deck cleaner, and plant a couple of hydrangea or peony bushes. Next year, I want to make this space into an outdoor living area ... but I don't think I can do it this year. Baby steps, right?
Have a good weekend! Are you planning on doing any projects? Please share!
See you swoon,
