Simple Front Yard Makeover: Before and After

I’m excited to share some of the progress I’ve made on my front yard this year. On top of adding a new roof, removing shutters and an old aluminum awning, I’ve done a tremendous amount of work in my gardens. Check it out:

This is the only true before shot I have of the front yard. The tree and weeds were even more overgrown than this when I moved in. The tree was supposed to be “weeping” – and needed major pruning.

I relocated some of the rock that was covering the sideyard and moved it here to create a barrier. The rocks were so covered with weeds in the sideyard; it was a mess.
