When Mac and Grandpa lived in the house from the 60s-80s, several trees, plants, shrubs, and even a garden were planted. From what I hear, the garden was enormous. There are several trees lining the side of the yard, and somewhere in the backyard, garlic is generously planted. Over the years, the amount of work required to keep all of that became overwhelming, so much of the landscaping was neglected.
Behind the storage shed was our “playhouse” as kids. There used to be an apple tree there, but it’s gone now. The fence has excessive overgrown vines. They will need trimmed before they completely take over!
The trees planted along the side of the road are excessively overgrown and haven’t been trimmed in ages.
There are beautiful rose bushes sprinkled throughout the yard, but, as you can see, they haven’t been trimmed. This particular rose bush has completely overtaken the side of the house.
There is honeysuckle everywhere (which I love!), but it’s massive. There are smaller blooming plants inside that honeysuckle, but it’s sucking the life out of them!
The beautiful pink azalea bushes lining the front of the house are mature and stunning, but they not only need trimmed and shaped, but there are patches that need more azaleas planted.
The dahlia shrubs (I think that’s what they are?) are hidden behind branches, weeds, and overgrown shrubs. But they are beautiful when they bloom!
This dual colored rose bush was one that our family gave Mac. It has beautiful blooms, but it needs some trimming and a trellis.
The blooming clover is such a fun surprise! They are randomly growing in the middle of the yard.
Currently, the place is a jungle. I have my work cut out for me to improve the curb appeal of the plants and shrubs. I usually reserve those projects for the summer, so I’ll be starting this large task in the coming weeks.
