Curb Appeal Idea
It all started last year when we had a curb appeal idea to add a little white fence in the front. This spring we saw some fencing at Menards, brought it home and got it done in a day. It was fun to do and really a small outdoor project that made a nice difference. We will add more plants and flowers next year and I wanted to show you the progress so far.
The front yard is shady due to a large tree so we planted Impatiens and added a few mature Hosta plants from the yard. We move Hosta around the yard like furniture. I’m sure you do too.
We did not buy enough little white fence, bought more to finish the line, and happily have a lot of leftover fencing to use in other spots in the yard.
The first decision to make was where to place the fence along the walkway. Ideally, I wanted to plant flowers along the walkway because flowers hugging a sidewalk looks so welcoming. I went with placing the fence along the walk and having flowers show from the street side for charming curb appeal.
After rototilling along the fence line, we stamped the dirt down.
Then added some garden top soil and planted the impatiens.
I highly recommend using a Preen Weed Control to keep weeds down during the growing season. Just sprinkle around the flowers like above. It is especially good for ground cover like pachysandra I wrote about a few years ago.
This year we got to enjoy the Iris longer because of the long cool weather this spring here in the Midwest. It is now June and we are still enjoying some cooler than normal days.
CURB APPEAL IDEA WITH A LITTLE WHITE FENCE:
Some hanging planters, pots with flowers and a chair with a pillow added charm and pops of color.
I have some coleus sitting there by the fence waiting to be planted. It really was a quick and easy transformation that added a lot of charm.
The little white fence is Suncast Grand View Fence and comes in various sizes. Ours is the 24 inch.
My little joy every day is this scene at the front door. I want to play out in the yard even more now. What have you done out in the garden this year?
Take a look at some other outdoor gardening and curb appeal idea projects I linked up with for more inspiration.
