Front Garden

Postby Bark Biter » Jun 06, 2013 9:42 am

So after years and years of not being able to get rid of the grubs, last summer hubby ripped everything thing up in the front lawn and took out I cannot remember how many wheelbarrels full of dirt and crap.

Left it all winter and this spring put down nematodes, the after a couple of weeks it was time to start planting.

All of the lillies and hostas are from by back yard, new sod and some very pretty lava rock from Georgian Bay, need to get more though.

Kudos to your husband. What a lot of work! It looks all ready to start filling in. :)

I love bank gardens. U can see everything at once... no 'plants hiding behind other plants'. ;)

This looks really nice! We had to do the same thing at our last house. Grubs destroyed the lawn so we replaced the entire front yard (it was a small city size) with mulch and pathways. It ended up looking so pretty, people would stop to talk about it!

LOVELY!!! I ripped out the lawn at our last house for the same exact reason...white grubs were a huge issue in our neighbourhood then. My garden was a jungle instead of the cottage garden I'd envisioned. Yours looks so classic and will fill in beautifully!!! Bravo.
