DIY (Outside)

A little outside DIY...

 Right now we renting a house and we are trying to make small, inexpensive improvements. The front yard has been needing a little TLC and we my husband finally got around to doing it. We aren't done but have made progress and I wanted to share.

This is a picture of the flower bed beside our house (by the driveway). Now don't make fun, I told you it needed some help.

 Adam got busy one Saturday morning pulling up weeds and old bushes. I am thankful for a husband who is willing to do things, like this, to make his wife smile. He knows the way to my heart.

It really did not take as long as I thought it would. Adam might say something different since he WAS the one doing the work. I helped a little and was in charge of supervising :)

It went from this to this in just a hour or so...


And finally it looks like this...

Who doesn't love a pine straw? 



  1. That looks great!!! We found a lady who sells plants for HALF of what Lowes sells them for. Let me know if you are interested and I will tell you where she is!!
