Meet my friend Mrs. Craig (Tammy). She works in the fashion industry but her appreciation for things of beauty spills over to the garden.
Here is Mrs. Craig and her main man when they first moved into their house (built in 1926). They live in a sweet neighborhood by Highland Park. The houses there are oozing with charm. But, some of those beauties could use a little TLC.
Mrs. Craig decided her exterior landscaping needed a pick me up. Houses are kind of like people; they grow in phases. Once the overgrown shrubs were removed, the garden started to look more like this:
Looking better, right? Well, after a bit more effort, here's what it looks like now:
Sooo much better!
I asked Mrs. Craig a few questions about her lawn makeover.
Did you work with a landscaper?
Mrs. Craig's next project is this little patch behind the house. Here is the before and middle shot:
I can't wait to see the final result!
Thanks for sharing. I love it so mulch.
& Mrs. Craig
Note from Mrs. Williams: Thanks for stopping by Mrs. Craig. Any chance you can stop by and do a little work on our front landscaping? It could totally use your skills!
