Cottage Garden Curb Appeal

Nothing is more relaxing to me than walking my dog through my neighborhood, and studying my neighbors "cottage gardens."
A White Picket Fence

My home is a small 1950's ranch house, and as my rose and front yard wildflower garden grows and flourishes, it finally occured to me that I want a picket fence, and a coastal cottage curb appeal. Luckily, my neighborhood is filled with this cottage gardening style.

As my ideas for the the landscape design become solidified, I'll post before, during and after photos of my garden updates. I'm currently studying fencing, arches, and cottage garden accessories.

Meanwhile, enjoy the stroll through my neighborhood!

I'm always impressed that so many of your neighbors garden. My neighbors don't. Most of them have over landscaped yards with professional gardeners keeping the weeds out of the low maintenance yards. We have gardeners that mow and edge (the jobs nobody wants)and that's it. I plant my own flowers and take care of them myself. Your neighborhood looks lovely.
