Welcome, my name is Brooke Kroeger and can easliy say I live my life in a garden. I just love beautiful things. I am an avid gardener and collect vintage roses and cottage style flowers. I share my own garden at my Creative Country Mom website, http://creativecountrymom.blogspot.com
This home makes the most of its small yard by removing the lawn and replacing it with an outdoor living area-in this case, they chose to install a firepit, but it could easily hold a dining or patio conversation set.
Narrow side yard features a gravel path with inlaid "stepping stones" made of metal circles embedded in the gravel and ringed with Mexican black pebbles. Inside the stepping stones are plantings of dwarf mondo grass, 'Sunshine' creeping veronica, and Corsican mint. Plantings include natives such as evergreen huckleberry, mountain hemlock, sword fern, and deer ferns.
