Front Yard Mini-Makeover!

When we purchased our house, we were not informed that there would be a manhole cover, yellow water marker, and yellow water pipe in our front yard (our house wasn't fully built when we bought it). So as you can imagine, I was a little bummed and unsure what to do to camouflage this unattractive sight! I decided to do a mini-makeover, until we find a better solution. I purchased resin containers (that look like ceramic!) and flowers from my local Fred Meyer, and used our concrete bird bath to help hide the unsightly pipes. I think it turned out pretty good! Its not all covered/blocked, but the new flower planters and birdbath do take your eyes away from the pipes and manhole cover.

Much better, huh!!!!?

We have a lot more ideas/projects for our yard/home, so keep checkin in!

Hope you all had a great weekend!
