Do you have a dream for your curb appeal? I know I do. The hubs and I have been working in the front yard little by little trying to update the curb appeal of our home. Last year we painted our brick, added gutters and replaced the fence. Do you make annual goals for your home? 

Since our home was built in the mid '90's, my goal is to bring it to today's standards. I am looking at curb appeal & windows this year.  Next year, I will focus on flooring and the backyard. 

The past two weekends we have dug-up the old flower beds, pulled up the flower bed guards & rocks to come up with a new or fresh look. One thing I have learned over the years is that killing a crepe murtle is near impossible. So, we dig & dig until we get the last root. We have moved our spring onions & garlic to the back yard, the Iris bulbs have been dug up and relocated to the opposite side of the home, lining the side of the home to add a little life.

We've added calla lilies to the most southern side of the home along with some rose bushes & a jasmine vine. This past weekend we dug up the front flower beds and added wandering red rose bushes to the front beds to add color and depth in front of our yellowing shrubs. We also added some wandering coral rose bushes in the cobalt blue planters in front of the white brick columns for contrast. I LOVE color. I love vibrant color. I want to keep things simple and easy to care for while having something that will stay year around. We are thinking of adding black mulch to help with the contrast, also. 

I feel like everyone has that trouble spots in their yard that drives them crazy... do you? This is mine! It is infront of a window and around the major tree in our yard. We can't seem to get anything to grow under it but weeds. We've thought about getting Hosta (I LOVE hosta) and ferns for near the house and then shrinking and building up the flower bed around the base of the tree. 

So now that I have shared our plans, what are yours? Show me pics, let's talk about curb appeal.
