Before & After: Walking Through an Austin Landscape

before, dirt, bare, landscape, frontyard

I’m a sucker for any landscape project that includes the addition of a new path, so when I came across this yard out of Austin, Texas I knew it would be a good one. Evolving over the course of 2 summers, homeowner and blogger Cyndi K. created a serene retreat spanning across her entire front yard. After tearing out the grass along with other landscaping, Cyndi wasn’t left with much more than a yard of leveled dirt.

Once she had a clean slate to work with, she began to bring in plants, stone and mulch to flank her newly constructed path. She stained the fence a warm brown and added some elements for the neighborhood birds. Of course, there are plenty of other photos on her blog that you should check out- different angles and lots of before and after shots. Check it out if you have a moment. Nice job, Cyndi! -erin

Before & After: A Front of House Makover (with an Orange Door)

I KNOW that orange freaks some people out and certainly it is a bold choice for a front door. As you might know, my front door (on my nearly black house) is orange and I LOVE that color combo. But after looking at this house makeover, I have decided that orange and grey might even…

Father’s Day Gift Idea: Little Stone House

My husband never fails to point out how much he loves the handful of small stone houses that are scattered hills around where we live. I have to admit, there is something especially charming and loveable about old stone homes….the type that seem like Hagrid might have just moved out of. We are not moving…the…
