Things around here have been a bit crazy, to say the least, the last 4/5 years. We are now into the start of our 5th year on the farm, and I am (hopefully) able to landscape the entrance to the house, and the rest of the homestead this year.
Apart from our mudroom entrance and lawn, the entrance to our house has been a mixture of mud and weeds. This week I tilled up the random weeds and had the kids help me bring some stones up from our ravine. I have a general idea of what I want to do for the walkway to the house and walkway between the porch and mudroom door, but I can't figure out what materials to use. (I can think of many things to use out of our budget, just not within.) So I am asking for a blogging brainstorm from any followers that are still out there!
You should be able to click on the photos to enlarge.
This first picture shows the walkway to the porch from the drive. The stones I put there temporarily are to keep feet from being muddy. They are too soft of stone to be permanent stones (one is already broken). The triangle area with the bell will be ornamental grasses with the bell on a post. There is also another walkway behind the bell leading to the mudroom entrance. The flower bed against the house will be for roses. (It is on the east of the house).
This picture shows the walkway to the mudroom.
This picture shows the full area. The flower bed separating the drive from the lawn will be for some shorter bushes and spring bulbs.
Thanks so much!
