What do you do to spruce up your yard for Spring? Share your ideas and get tips from HGTV Home‘s John Gidding February 19.
? Why didnt i think of that hehe. Usually it says what it would be for each size. Just so confused, maybe I need more sleep hehe. Thanks for your replay!! Enjoy your Sunday!! *smiles*
I love when an already useful item like solar lights are paired with a second function like planters! Make things look like they were always meant to be there
Perhaps we should write a Dear John Letter:womanlol:
I love it!
My Springtime spruce of my backyard!
Atop of my 6ft redwood/color stockard fence are HGTV solar lights attached every 4ft. These lights evenly light a path front to rear without being instructive to my neighbors yard. :womanvery-happy: I also built a hanging plant stand along side of above described fence and same color. Simple design while practical. Low maintenance!!!:smileyhappy:
John I have put my order in with the Property Brothers. I have a large project and I need
their expertise. Plenty of lemonade will be served.
Since they are good with dogs I see no problems. I love HGTV.
My true project is one I will be working on a pagoda garden. I have a huge backyard
and I have already started. It’s a job. Wish you had tips on how to even complete
something like this.
I think they are so beautiful and peaceful.:heart: If you are not busy can you come by?
Well does not hurt to ask.:womanhappy:
Thank you all for the congratulations ! 🙂 still learning. That is so sweet to tell me. Tori
Hi John, Since your visit last year, we’ve turned our yard into an outdoor living space thanks to many HGTV products. My favorite is the solar lamp posts with planter rings. I bought 2 and hope to buy 2 more when they are back in stock. This year, all i have to do is plant flowers and watch for more pretty, but functional products to add to our outdoor family room.
John… We’re on 2-1/2 acres up in the mountains. Our ‘yard’, so-to-speak, backs-up to National Forest. All I do is scatter about a ton of Wildflower Seed over our property, *lol* . By Spring-time, it looks like our house is in the middle of a Meadow… beautiful!
Other than that, we’ve got Pine Trees all over the place, so, I just have to replant the flowers in our Window Boxes all around the house… easy, peasy. Out of the four Window Boxes on the West wall, two are dedicated to Herbs. At Spring-time, after the last Frost, I replant all the Herbs too since they never make it thru the freeze of Winter.
Hi John, we have a company get the huge lawn ready, since my husband a veteran no longer can be doing his favorite past time. I go to a nursery and get the flowers i can not kill. We have so much red clay here and i do have some small flower beds. I love to get hanging baskets and some other flowers i did not destroy. I love my great murtle trees and i will replace the roses, most of them went and never came back. I have a green thumb for the indoor plants, but the out door was my husband magic hands. Georgia weather can be brutal with the scorching heat!
What I’d like to do is basically what everyone else mentioned, but am disabled right now and cannot afford to pay any one. Hubby will only mow our half acre yard once every two weeks. He works out of town and is only home weekends, so he says mowing is enough for him. He needs a day off to recooperate before having to go back to work for 5 – 10 hr shifts.
CONGRATULATIONS TORI336 FOR YOUR NEW RANK. You worked hard and so deserve it!
THANK YOU DELRAYLAW FOR NOTICING HER RANK AND POSTING SO WE ALL CAN GIVE HER "CONGRATS". THAT IS VERY CONSIDERATE OF YOU!!!!!!!!!!! :womanwink:
Hi. Re seed my yard. Add more colors of plants so when you are sad you see that and smile. All the worries disappear. Add different color of roses in my back yard what a beautiful site that would be. Tori
well Our giant dog has been digging lots of deep holes for us,I think he is wanting to plant trees! 😉
What I do to spruce up my yard for Spring:
2) Check all my lawn equipment…lawnmower, weed eater,
blower, and tools.
3) Mow lawn over 5acres
5) Trim shrubs
6) Trim palm trees
7) Remove last year’s annuals to make room for new ones
8) Cut back my perennials so they can be ready for new
9) Edging the bed and putting new mulch down
10) Check the irrigation system
Well John, that’s it for now. Have I forgotten anything? I’m already tired and haven’t started….lol….:womanlol:
HAPPY SPRING, 2016! :womanwink:
I let everything grow wild and unwatered until I receive a notice from my City Code Enforcement office. Usually my neighbor’s brothercleans up my front yard for about $60, but he was laid up. So this year I had to use the guy who maintains several of my neighbors’ properties. 2 fat old guys with a truck, 2 1/2 hours, $500. They did a great job, but I was horrified at the cost! I’ve wasted my life on trivial pursuits; had I become a gardener, I could enjoy a rich retirement and afford to shop at HSN. 🙁
