Since the weather is getting a little nicer and Spring has “arrived”, I decided our house needed some color!! I want to plant some flowers and the only problem is…..
So, now that I have admitted my problem maybe someone out there would help?! I did start my gardening endeavor by weeding. UGH! I need to buy round-up lol I attempted to plant some seeds BUT it will take 60 days to see results. I have a feeling I won’t see anything but for $1 I thought I would give it a shot. Don’t even ask what the flower was…I forget already and threw away the package. Oops! They did look pretty on the package though :)
Here are pictures of our “yard” and “front lawn.” Just thought I’d point out where the sun hit. Apparently certain flowers need more sun than others. 0_o Any ideas would be amazing!!
|This is our side yard. It gets full sun for most of the day (when it’s not raining lol).|
|Area in our side yard with the patio. This also gets full sun for most of the day.|
|As you can see, the front of our house has some plants but I want COLOR!! Can you plant flowers (or something with color, doesn’t have to be a flower) where there is no sun?? To the right of the rock river is our neighbor’s yard.|
|The other side of the front of the house. To the left of the rock river is the neighbor’s yard.|
We have mulch where there is no grass and underneath the mulch is this light gray and rocky dirt.
Do I need to buy soil?
Should I buy seeds?
Or flowers that already bloomed and I just put in the ground?
Please help the gardening challenged :) Please and Thank You!!
