|Massive yews have been at the corner of the driveway for 25 years. They're a good foundation so I'm keeping them. There's a little Prince Charming lilac in the center and the brown area is dead grass.|
|The dead-grass area has been tilled and the lilac moved closer to the house. I added a second lilac and in the center is a Heart of Gold redbud tree.|
Now for the fun part: Filling in the blanks with perennials. My husband's job is to gather enough rocks to line the outer edge of the space, to make it look more finished and to mimic a couple other areas I've planted. I would love for this space to eventually be as lush and gorgeous as the one at the end of the driveway.
Have I ever mentioned how much I love working at a garden center?
