Front Yard Raised Flower Bed by Amy & Chris

Chris and I have been in our home for a little over two years. It seems like every year we are redoing the flower bed and we don't know what to do with it. This year was it!  We decided to redo it once and for all. We fixed it up the correct way so we wouldn't have to deal with it year after year.

This was the before while we were ripping up the flower bed....

We decided to purchase stone bricks to create a raised flower bed.
We added bushes in the back and will plant flowers next year.
We planted two pencil bushes, I love these!
Our next project is cleaning out the garage and to create more room we decided to put the trash can outside. We put up a small fence barrier to hide the trash can from the road and add more curb appeal.
The total project cost around $300, but totally worth it! Next year all we have to do is sit back and enjoy the front yard!

Thanks for stopping by, we couldn't be happier with the final result. :)
