DIY flowerbed


20130313_174032

My husband and I recently bought a new house and it needed some help in the landscaping department. I love flowers and there wasn’t anywhere to plant them so I decided to create a new flowerbed.

I started by wandering around the house and looking at it from a bunch of different angles. Also, I thought about how the water will flow when it rains because some of the flowers need well drained soil to grow best.

I chose a section on the right of the house and went to work. I mapped it out with stones. Then I used a shovel and good ol’ manual labor to till up the dirt and grass. Then I layed out my chosen flowers. And, ta da! It’s a flowerbed!
