Refreshing the Curb Appeal

A while back I posted a picture of the front of our house when the azalea's where in full bloom. They were beautiful, but only when they bloomed. Every other day of the year they were a mess. I tried to cut them back and restore them to good health but they were too big and overgrown for too many years before I got to them. J and I decided to take them out and plant box woods instead. They are much easier to maintain and leaves and debris wont get stuck in them like the azaleas (seriously, you wouldn't believe the stuff I found in them). So after we made the decision to remove them and plant box woods we decided to mulch all the flower beds, widen the side bed, and have hasta and day lilies replanted from another bed in the yard. The transformation is below. You can find the original post here. Stay tuned for the "after" pics!

Here is the side flower bed that we made bigger:

Azalea's are GONE!:
