Front yard

Before

When we purchased the house, the front yard was overgrown and a ghastly gray.

In Progress

We started by painting the house a retro green with gray trim. Hydrangeas, rosemary and other bushes were transplanted from the flower bed.

We replaced the porch light and painted our front door a rich purple.

The decorated front porch

Next, we bust out the half wall in front of the door and boy was it fun. (Now, we just need to finish it!)

In 2010, we had all our windows and doors replaced with energy efficient double-paned ones. Our front window was replaced with a larger one.

We also replaced the old door and security gate with a brand new door.
