New House Landscape

As most of you know, we bought our house sight unseen, kind of crazy but thats how it goes in the Army. We received orders to come to Columbia, Missouri. I researched schools and narrowed it down and we looked at 4 and 5 bedroom homes in our price range within that school district and bought the only one.

This was the photo of the front of the house that I fell in love with

We decided although I liked the height in the first picture we didn't love the trees, they had not been kept well and had an odd color bloom that really clashed with the door, the bushes were all but dead. Then we decided we didn't like the orange tint to the door. So we had the door painted a deeper red, pulled up all the old landscape and planted box woods and some flowers and then incorporated our white bench into it.

We still have some more work to do. The upper floor flower boxes need something in them, the side needs some more edging to the beds and more mulch is needed to fill in some areas, we hope to be done with all of that before the big housewarming party on the 6th of August.

The house is beautiful! I'm a tad bit two years I don't think I have accomplished what you have in a few weeks! Between the deployment prep, new job, deployment etc......I am just now getting around to contracting painters for the interior. I'll just use your awesomeness as motivation ;)
