Before & After Garden: A Brazilian Extravaganza #4

front porch makeover before garden

I’ve got nothing against murals….and perhaps this is the brazilian version of rooting for the home team (which I am also not against)….but I quite prefer the new shades of green to the old image of a bad guy from Rocky and Bullwinkle.  Don’t you?

This front porch garden says ‘welcome’ in the most pretty serene way.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.

    Wow – what a great transformation! Amazing what some paint and a few plants & a bit of imagination can do.
