I was so happy, when we first moved in, to find out our condo boasts a cute little backyard…Unfortunately, spring has come and I am now presented with a rocky, weedy, ugly strip of land.
Today, Connor and I have to run back over to our house to be there while our new washing machine gets delivered (YES!!!). So while we’re there my plan is to rake, thrash, and punish this yard into submission. That will complete phase one: non-ugliness. Phase two, which will hopefully happen later this spring break, will consist of planting, evening the landscape, and porch fixing. =) Ideally…although maybe unrealistically since I’ve never grown anything before…I would like to use some of these ideas:
pretty stepping stones
Hydrangeas! (Do they even grow in Colorado?)
Hanging garden! There are a bunch of hooks right outside of our sliding glass door…maybe I can make use of those?
