Landscaping at our new home

Filed under: health, home — fairyguts @ 12:18 am

Our new house does not have a very big yard and very few established plants. And some of the ones that were here weren’t to my liking.  Two FREE posts to craigslist and I had takers for the unwanted plants in nearly 10 minutes.

The first to go was 5 rose bushes. I like rose flowers, but these were big, leggy bushes, with big thorns and a very light fragrance. I decided I’d rather go with a highly fragrant trellising rose in a different color and give these guys a home with someone who appreciated them.

This small hydrangea was oddly placed and interfered with parking as well as having sadly drab colors.  I know I could change the colors with soil additives, but hydrangeas are not high on my favorites list.

Now we have open holes, but it’s ready for me to put something I really like in there! Like more native plants!

  1. I never thought about listing flowers/bushes on Craigslist. Good idea! We also have a small yard but it’s packed full of plants — the previous owner created a zen cottage garden. I’m looking forward to future posts about your landscaping plans!
