#56 – Landscape the Front of the House as Planned for the Past 3 Years

Living in a town house we really don’t have much that we need to or even can landscape. To be honest, I prefer it that way.  Well, for the most part. When we moved in one of the first things that I wanted to change was the horrible landscaping done in the front of our place near our door. Three years came and passed, and let’s just say that the landscaping had pretty much stayed untouched.It didn’t take much convincing for me to add this to the list.

How it looked before:

Now, this is actually it at it’s best. Over the course of the summer the hostas will become huge and the pine bush (whatever it is) will become unruly and unkempt. It really looks quite ugly, and since there is nothing behind the two of them the empty space becomes even more noticeable.

So what was the plan? We removed the pine bush, spread out the hostas, and then planted a bleeding heart behind the ring of hostas. We’re hoping when everything grows in it will look tasteful and well groomed. It should also be pretty easy to maintain, minus some occasional pruning.

How it looked afterwards:

Is it an improvement??? Me and the hubby think so!

    I think it looks much better. You should consider add plum pudding coral bells behind the hostas to vary the foliage color. What color is your bleeding heart? Pink or white?

    That’s a great idea!! The bleeding heart is pink so it should look good together.
