Our August Landscaping Project

A couple of Fridays ago I got tired of our 70's first impression that our front yard was making and decided it was time to add some color. 

I went to Mahana, and all they really had was vinca, and a bunch of trees, tropicals and bushes, so we ended up with this for now:

BEFORE




DURING



AFTER
African Lily, Heleconia, Balsam, Vinca, Purple Thing

I don't love it, but at least that dang african lily is under control now. I read that they're invasive, so I thought about getting rid of it all together...and it's yellow :( I wish it was a pretty purple one. Those heleconia were volunteers, and the balsam and purple thing were poached from the backyard where we have an abundance of both.
