Our Garden Makeover!

8 months and 2 days ago Tahu and I started on a bit of a major revamp of our gardens. Every few weekends we'd work on it a bit more, including rebuilding the fence and painting it, clearing all the ground, building the gardens and filling them with soil, planting, maintaining and weeding and then we had a guy come and lay the bark for us cos we ran out of time before Christmas. Next year we will lay grass there but for now it's Christmas, we're about to get married and we have gorgeous gardens.

Here's the before and after photos:





This is our front yard which for some reason I didn't take a before photo of.

Neither of us had any experience in the gardening thing but I knew what I wanted and with a bit of help from our Dads and my mum we have finished! I've had a lot of fun finding the plants we wanted including mini calli lillies, asiatic lillies, normal and mini gladioli, ferns, manuka flowers and then our vege garden that has carrots, brocolli, leaks, spinach, lettuce, tomatos and potatos.

Was a big job but I am so glad we did it!

I like what you did with your garden. It looks very organized and refreshing. I admire your dedication to undergo such a tedious garden revamp. I can almost imagine what your garden would look like when all the flowers are in bloom. Great job!

Good job!!
The makeover shows that you are very organized and serious to accomplish what you started in. I liked the renovation, it looks very tidy.

It would be great if you add some orchids to hang on that fence. That would make the fence look less plain than if you leave it as it is. I will follow your updates on this makeover, and please share some photos when it's done. Congratulations, by the way.

Good move for asking your parents' help in growing some beautiful flowers like lillies, gladioli, ferns, manuka, and others.
