For the past 5 years, I have tried to get my husband to level off this planter as it slopes into our basement. To let you know, I finally got him to do it, it probably took a total of 30 minutes on his part to put the blocks in and then I did the rest. The best part is that I have had this fountain bottom sitting here and I just have put the hose in it. Well, I decided to plant it, and here it is. I am so excited over something that has been a eyesore for the past five years. Sometimes I think we get so use to looking at something we don't even realize how ugly it is.
But now, look how cute it turned out, filled with these amazing plants.
I found a new home for the hose.This planter is by my back door and surrounded by boxwoods. I am a boxwood freak!
Since I had a yard of dirt, I decided to level off another area that was driving me crazy. This faces my kitchen window, so now I have something nice to look out at while I am doing dishes.
It's amazing what a yard of soil can do, a few plants, and alot of work. What a great
While I was at it, I removed some flowers along the edge of this walkway to my front door, and guess what I planted, more boxwoods. They always look so little when you first plant them. I can't wait until they get bigger and actually form a hedge. The hedge in front of the walkway are boxwoods that have been there for many years. So this little project cost me only $30.00.
Have a good day!
