Today, my blog is going where it has never gone before: Landscape Design. As many of you know, yard work is not my thing (Fantasy Football is BTW). Last night, I had a wide hair which proved to be quite therapeutic. I decided to dig up 3 half dead bushes between my driveway and house (See pictures above).
Did I consult Jennifer about this first? Of course not. Actually, she didn’t even notice. She has her hands FULL right now. Also, tearing these bushes out had nothing to do with that black snake that jumped at me last year and escaped into the bushes. Really. And no, I am not on Pinterest.
So, I’m looking for a little advice here.
What should I put in place of the bushes?
Here are a few of my thoughts. Please vote on what you think would be best, and I’m sure some of you will have some better ideas.
Here are a few options:
a. Leave the space how it is (This is my #1 option right now.)
b. Cement the space and basically extend the driveway to the house.
c. Plant more bushes. If you like this option, please suggest what bushes and how many.
d. Apply some type of ground covering (I.e. pine straw, mulch, bark, rocks).
e. Put in a park bench. This could go over the ground covering or cement.
f. Turn it into a beautiful flower bed for Julia and Jessie. This could be an ongoing father daughter project.
g. Plant some spices (I.e. parsley, mint, etc.)
Well, what do you think? Do you have any other ideas or suggestions?
Thanks for your help!
