In a Weekend Create a new planting bed Add contrast and color to your home exterior with a new planting bed. Prime spots are at the front corners of the yard, along driveways or walkways, and immediately in front of the house. When creating a new bed, choose features that will frame your home rather than obscure it. Opt for stone or precast-concrete blocks to edge the bed. Include a mix of plant size, color, and texture for optimal results
These are very good ideas on how to prepare your home for house guests. When we stayed at one friends' home, they provided a "snack bar" of dried fruits and candied nuts. That was a memorable (and yummy) touch!
