I am so in love with this before & after and super excited to share it with you guys! Yes- this photo is really the before shot and when I saw it over on Shephard’s blog, I thought maybe I missed the before photo. I mean, come on…how often do you come across a yard that’s already awesome transition into something even more spectacular? Hardly ever. It’s usually old cracked patios or crunchy dead grass or gardens that are beyond parched being made over. Not yards that already have a sweet path snaking through plush, vibrant plantings, leading back towards a cute little corner shed. But, if you’re ready for it, click through to see what this space looks like after the renovation.

The water and lighting features are pretty impressive. -erin

The Original Succulent Gardener

There is no denying the hot trend is Succulents…and another hot trend is vertical gardening….making the succulents put on a wall thing like the most-uber-hottest-trend ever. I think of Flora Grubb as the one who made the trend huge….but as I stumbled around this morning, I was interested to learn that way back in 1984,…
