After we bought our house, first thing we did was repaint the outside and patio, knock down the door and added sidelights, and installed a new garage door with windows on top. Two years later, we are finally adding to the list of curb appeal.
Heres a close up of the non existing flower bed. Bags of mulch and plants are ready to be replanted.
Total cost of flower bed project: Under $30
I bought two small plants for our flower bed at $6 each.
My father in law had two potted plants that he gave me so they just replanted it right on our flowerbed.
Mulch was from Home depot. We purchased three bags at $5 each.
I was shocked at how much plants cost. WOW is all I can say... I plan to open a nursery now. I looked around for affordable plants and ended up with two baby plants in the middle. They look pathetic but I refuse to pay so much for plants that overtime will grow. They look good enough to me for now. Lucky my father had two potted plants for me to replant. I love free stuff. I can't review the work load because I didn't do any real work. I just told them where I wanted the plants to be replanted and they did the rest. Project took two men about an hour total.
Here are the before and after photos: I can't do the exact same angle to compare yet because the sun is in my way. I'll try to update with the same angle later. But overall I love the new update because it defines our front porch so much better. Its amazing how a little bit of dark mulch and some plants can do to our boring house. I also love that all of our trim and doors are the same white.
