~ Front Yard Curbs ~

Our Sunday; The creation of the front yard curbing. We already had the curbing around one of the trees and the front border plants. We had bender board around the river rock and the tree facing the drive way. We knew we wanted to complete the curbing and since the weather had perked up we decided to have the curbing done.
These guys were great and everything was done to perfection.
This little red curbing machine is amazing, it was fun to watch.









Tomorrow we have to rinse down the curbing and the pattern will show up more. Next weekend we will add more river rock. We love the way it turned out, I think it looks like a dry river bed and has a playful feel to it. I will show you next week the final outcome.

Hi!! I popped over from Nancy's! Your curbing looks awesome!! A couple of our neighbors had this done a few years ago. We considered it, but had so many other things to do, we decided against it. What a lovely walkway up to your front door!!

Hope you have a blessed day!!

Elizabeth.. It looks fantastic! Wow! Your lawn is so GREEN! I miss green :( with the Ga drought the last few years we seem to have to start over every spring. We just reseeded and thank heavens we've been getting plenty of rain.. so wish me luck that ours will be as pretty as y'alls soon. This is a great project to add to Met Monday.. you should link it.
Have a Blessed Day.
Hugs,
Debbie

Oh, I just love the look of that curbing, great "curb" appeal, LOL. Looks fantastic. Can't wait to see your kitchen either, you'll have to tell me when it's done.

Oh..Just beautiful! I love the neat and tidy yet playful appearance! This totally something I would do myself! It looks like it is finished in your pictures so far...but will come back to see if could look any better than it already does! You should both be proud of your designer selves!:D

Thanks for checking out my blog & following. Now, on checking out yours, I find that I must follow you and cry with jealousy! How dare you have such lovely curbs when my heart has been desiring them for so long. What I could do with that little red machine! And how dare you make such delicious strawberry pies when I must wait another month and a half to even pick them. And then the audicity to put up those beautiful crown moldings --- well it's really too much for me to bear! Sob, sob!

Terry said...

Happy Mothers day filled with many blessings.
