Warm weather has arrived and our grass is finally starting to grow greener! I have been looking around at pictures of pretty gardens to get some “Yard-spiration” for my own garden areas. What do you think of these beautiful yards?
I especially love the tiny blue flowers as the ground cover!
The vibrant color of these flowers is Ah-Mazing!
I have always wanted to plant Hydrangeas in my yard. Maybe this is the year I do it!
Your yard is waiting for you to make it beautiful this Spring! It does not take a lot to give your yard a quick jumpstart. However, to make things easier on yourself, you will need to gather a few must have gardening supplies:
- Plants. Be sure to pick plants that will grow in your zone of the country.
- Gardening Gloves. They will protect your hands.
- Shovel. It makes digging holes in the dirt a lot easier!
- Wheelbarrow. You’ll be amazed at how useful a wheelbarrow can be for all your yardwork!
