This may not look like much, but a few months ago this was a pile of dirt, weeds and leaves surrounding our back porch. I turned the soil, planted some flowers and shrubs, put down a weed filter and then topped it off with pine bark. It looks so much nicer now! I'm thinking about adding some bright flowers around it too, just for some added color.
I also made a new flower bed our by the back fence but its still a work in progress so i'll show that when it is done and all pretty. Ideas are always welcomed!
