Small Planters

We picked up a unused planter stand from my mother. After letting it sit unused on the side of the house for a long time, I finally got around to building some planter boxes for it. So off to Home Depot for some cheap wood:

Hack and whack some:

And they started to take shape:

And ready for use:

We had hopped to get some strawberries growing in these, but we’ve had dismal luck with it. So now they’re just decoration at this point.

Front Yard Flower Bed

When we purchased this house several years ago, there was zero landscaping done to it. Over the years we expanded things greatly, but had come to the realization that the front needed a little something “more”. So we picked up some rocks from the farm for a border and got to work with the Supervisor Dog watching over us:

With the border down, and the weed barrier in place:

I stated hauling rock with the Ranger:

All done! Just need to wait awhile before we plant some things in it to give the lawn fertilizer time to deplete:
