A blog about designing your garden, growing vegetables, plant care and much more

Well, our hot Kansas summer is in full swing and I am allergic to sweating while working in the yard. As a result, my project list has moved back inside. However, I realized I hadn't updated on the yard projects I started in the spring. So, here you go.... Along the front fence line, where I had planted my grandma's peonies...  ...I put these flower beds down to protect them from the lawn mower. My plan is to add perennials in the fall - daisies, coneflower, stuff like that. In May, there was a lone peony from my transplants. I brought some iris bulbs home from my mom's house and planted them along the fence,  as well as some bulbs I dug up from another area of my yard. I have no idea what they are,  so next Spring I hope to have a pretty surprise in this corner of the flowerbed. The front of the house before flowerbeds.... ...and after flowerbeds. So neat and tidy. Along the side of the sunroom, I wanted a walkway leading to the cellar. And here it is.   I have big plans for the area around this tree. See all those rocks? They were buried in a ring around the tree and I dug every one of them out! Yes, I actually broke a sweat while working in the yard that day. I stared at the pile of rocks for a couple weeks, waiting for inspiration, before finally arranging them around the tree. It's not real pretty to look at yet. But, I have a vision.  The process is rarely pretty, is it? Kind of like life. Here is the vision.... Source Source Source Source ...and here is the future home of my own rock garden. Thanks for stopping by today at A House and Yard!

If you’ve got a garage, shed, or even a house with bare ground nearby, you may be missing an opportunity. Structures create an instant backdrop, breaking the line of sight so that the eye concentrates on the garden, not something in the distance. They also provide a microclimate: deflecting wind and providing a few hours of shade, depending on their orientation. Here are 4 different ideas for filling that empty space.

Colorful Front-Yard Garden Plans

Decorate Your Downspout The area around your downspout can be tricky to keep looking good. Try this garden plan. Garden size: 8 by 10 feet. Download this plan!

Downspout Garden Plan (1-Hydrangea Snow Queen, 3-Arythium Pictum/Japanese painted fern, 5-Black-leaved Ligularia, 3-Japanese Forest Grass)

Downspout Garden --- Downspouts have a knack for keeping their surroundings moist for much of the year. This problem-solving garden plan was designed with plants that can thrive in moist soils, including low, wet spots in your yard. Tall joe-pye weed grabs attention away from the downspout; pink turtlehead, dwarf sweetflag, and lobelia camouflage the area around the opening. Best on the east, west, or north side of a building; a southern exposure may be too hot, or dry out too quickly.

AN EXQUISITE CORNER GARDEN WITH ORNAMENTAL GRASSES. Gardeners are just beginning to discover ornamental grasses and their majestic contribution to home landscapes. These lush fountains of foliage are lovely in spring and summer, but they’re nothing short of spectacular in fall, when their feathery flower heads sway in the breeze. The buff-colored plumes endure into winter, too, keeping the garden attractive when all else has gone dormant. For contrast, we’ve added a couple flowering perennials and some optional spring-flowering bulbs to the design. Plant in full sun.
