Although we love our townhouse, we've never really loved or even understood the 'landscaping' that was done by the previous owners in our front yard.
While the other townhouses on our block have nice grass and flower beds, we had a front yard full of mulch, visible cable wires, and a few random plantings.
Then one day, this really cute gardener wandered onto our property.
He worked and slaved...
And slaved and worked. He even enlisted his wife to do a teeny tiny bit of the work, but she wasn't much help.
Finally we had a new front yard!
The hunky gardener installed an awesome stone wall.
He filled the flower beds with azaleas, hostas, purple knight, impatiens, vincas, salvia, mums, cuphea, persian shield, dianthus, and a few bushes that were already in our yard. I'm working on identifying them so that I can continue to expand my extremely limited knowledge of plants.
Oh and he put in some grass that's struggling to grow in the 99 degree weather we've been having. Thank you mysterious gardener for all your hard work. I love you!
