First, using my son-in-law's jeep, they pulled out the bushes from in front of the house. There were several of them!
Then they cleared the debris and excess soil. They also laid down black plastic under the soil to keep the weeds from poking through. You can also see the roots of one of the bushes in the left of this picture. They were huge!
When the were done clearing the area, they dug holes for the posts and began building my new flower box!
Here is the flower box completed!
My husband spent a whole weekend power washing the house and then repainted the old black shutters with burgundy paint. Now I have a house with curb appeal!
Here is my new flower box covered in flowers that are in full bloom! I love the new look that removing the old bushes and replacing them with flowers created! What do you think?
