I have an actual post though. One without apologizes and excuses. I will however, be asking for your input!
The lot that our mobile home is on is rented. It's a nice size lot with lots of trees. We also have LOTS of leaves and NO grass in the front yard. The leaves of course need to be raked up. I have a small front porch that leaves much to be desired.
I have decided that I'd like to have a container garden around our drive way and porch. The ground at the bottom step is very hard and gets a big 1 inch deep mud puddle when it rains. I'm in the process of saving up some money for a load of gravel and some stepping stones to make a walk way from the drive way to my porch.
I know nothing about gardening. But, I found this awesome idea through
Life In Rehab. She also gives a great tutorial on how she created it.
Well, guess what! I've got a pile of these bricks in my front yard that I could probably do a miniature version of this! I've got my weekend planned out!
Did I mention, I know nothing about gardening? Well, I don't. Any suggestions of flowers that would be great for containers and don't require full sunlight? I'd love to have some greenery as well as some pretty blooms!
