This is the first week of our 2nd annual Outdoor Extravaganza! This week we are focusing on plants and flowers to brighten up or transform your outdoor spaces.
Since moving into my brand new house last October we have been focused on the backyard... and by focused meaning staring at it willing that concrete and plants would just appear one day. Our front yard came landscaped bear-bone style, and we knew we wanted to change that too, but since it was done the backyard was first. But after Shauna asked me to participate I thought the front could use some sprucing!
The hubs and I have always love the modern look and straight lines so instead of just simply buying some shiny glazed pots we decided to make our own out of concrete.
I love this Horsetail Reed plant. It is sort of like a bamboo... but the stalk is just a little less thick. In a few months it will fill up the circle and be full.
We did two to flank the garages, and I would like 2 smaller ones to flank the doorway...
But the hubs would like one more larger planter on the right side of the garage.
What do you think?
Tomorrow I will have the full tutorial for these concrete planters....
and don't forget you can link up your plant and flower projects!
And check out the projects of these lovely ladies:
