DIY Front Yard MakeoverTraditional Landscape, Boise

DIY front landscaping with pondless waterfall. A mixture of perennial and annual flowers keep the flowerbed looking lush all summer and is an inexpensive way to add curb appeal (tip: install a drip line for the hanging baskets - much easier than hand watering!) The black adironack style front porch swing that we built serves as the perfect place to sip lemonade and enjoy the blooms!

    The large pink flowers are part of a ground cover called an "ice plant" - its hard to tell from the picture, but they're gorgeous! They close up at night and open during the day. The color stays all season which is wonderful. Honestly, I am not sure what the other ground covers are - we ended up taking them out last summer because they were choking out the ice plant. But we already miss the mixture of color they bring so I think we're doing to add some dividers and replant.

      My husband and I built it. We found the plans online but it was a few years ago so I'm not sure of the source. Thanks for your question!

      Thank you so much for your reply! If you look at my photos you will see a portico we are adding and Ipe deck. In those shots you can see the existing sidewalk. It is a long path because it goes from driveway to front door and the house kind of curves on the site. $10,000 is a lot to me for that. My husband and I are big DIYers, on our third house. He is one of those guys that can pretty much do anything and used to build houses many years ago. I think we could do project just wished I had a person who knows more than me to develop plan with. I seem to have only talked to people locally around me and they don't see too creative or really show any interest.

      We have been working on this house 9 long years. On the outside of house we have Added pergola in back and small one above a garage side door,built a cupola with lighted lantern, replaced garage door and put in a lot of landscaping. I wish you lived near me!! Inside of house we have been redoing every room. Gutted kitchen, mudroom, etc.

      You have to run the line up the wall in an inconspicous place and then down into the baskets.

          Hi! Are the day lilies perennial? Thanks

          • carotx
            Yes, daylilies are perennial. Stella D'Oro can be divided every few years and you'll increase the amount of plants you have for free!
