So over the Labor Day weekend, we finally redid our foundation planting. I was finally able to make up my mind on what to get, thank goodness! As I mentioned before, we tore out all of the old bushes and have replaced them with dwarf varieties. We got a Dwarf Alberta Spruce, 2 Gumpo White Azaleas, 2 China Girl Holly, 1 China Boy Holly and we planted the 2 boxwood that S gave us. I think it turned out really well.
This is the before shot from around Easter this spring.
This is how it looks now. I really think it makes our house look "younger" and I'm so happy to have those big gnarly bushes gone.
We planted the China Boy Holly off to the side of the yard. We'll have to keep up with the pruning of these shrubs so since the boy holly dosesn't have any berries we figured it would be fine over in another part of the yard and we wouldn't have to worry about trimming it as often.
I'm really happy to finally have this project completed.
Now I just need to get my spring bulbs ordered and planted!
Have you done any garden projects lately?
