Hydrangea Heaven

BBoxwoods Gardens & Gifts has just finished replanting my outdoor containers for the season. Their crew comes twice a year to refresh all my planters saving me tremendous time and even a little money—all things considered. And just take a look at the results! Thank you Cleveland and team!

    Your landscaping is very lush and beautiful. Love, love love it! I am fond of Hydrangeas’s because my Grandfather had them in front of his front porch were he lived. They were beautiful! I actually have a hydrangea planted in my yard that came from my Grandfathers house and I take it with me whenever we move and it grows beautifully. I call it the traveling Hydrangea! Thank you for sharing your beautiful yard! Love the boxwoods too!

      Darrin, There are two tulips at the gate. One of them is puched to the side. I found them at Scott’s about 3 years ago.

    oh my, your place looks heavenly!! just darling and so green and lush! I am inspired! I love how you used the crushed granite (is it?) in your courtyard. we are thinking about removing our grass between our garden beds to make maintenance easier.

    Thank you Diana! We have so much shade in Atlanta that grass would not grow. The front path is pea gravel, but the back garden does have the crushed granite. We love the lush garden this year.
