Driving past our home before we owned it was quite a place to behold and it wasn’t because it had curb appeal. Our yard resembled more of a junkyard on a small scale and so when we purchased the property we had a lot of work to do on not just the interior but the exterior as well.

Building a potting shed was one of the first exterior projects that I created. With the help of my brother this building was built only using reclaimed items. It has had several looks throughout the seasons and I always enjoy planting around it each year.
The newest project around our home is the small garden pond that I built last year. This project has brought so much joy while we sit on the deck and enjoy the sound of running water, dragonflies buzzing about and even watching the birds bathe in the waterfall.
I really enjoy using unique pieces for the garden to add texture and interest. I also can not pass up a good terra cotta pot and often stack them in piles and will often plant in them as well. Old metal wheels and galvanized buckets are a favorite for placing in the flower gardens.
We still have a very long to-do list but sometimes the inside of the home takes priority over the exterior. At the top of the to-do list is painting the deck this year and I hope to accomplish that this spring. Stay tuned for updates.
