Garden Design Ideas for SMALL GARDEN MAKEOVER! Curb Appeal!


hey guys it’s Shirley Bovshow with Home
and Family and I want to welcome you to our new mini welcoming garden to our
home. Now, what we used to have here was a sad patch of lawn that everybody kept
walking through as you can see in the picture it looked dead we kept feeding
it never work so we stopped fighting it and we came up with an idea to make a
beautiful little water-wise garden with the path that people can actually walk
through now I want to give you a few tips based on this design so that you
can create a small little garden as well what makes this work guys is that I
limited the palette of plants as you can see we’ve got really striking magenta
these are Bougainvillea trees they’re gonna stay small like this so it’s a
very vibrant color so our primary color then we have down here yellow which
looks great as a contest this is our yarrow and then this beautiful romantic
looks like a butterfly actually called butterfly wings this is Guara
and it’s got white and pink it’s a white pink yellow and magenta is just the
color that we need what are the things that we had to do here was we had to
raise the garden bed you see it’s got a gentle slope if you at home have bad
soil and you really start digging into hard pan you can always raise the level
of your soil and then plant in that so that was something we did when you put
your stepping stones down make sure always to put at least one inch of
so that you can wedge it in and level it and they won’t be dancing around okay
come on over this or take a closer look now I’m the second day I’ve hit the
second part of the makeover to bring this area into the yard to look more
like our new garden the way I did that was by repeating the plants again the
bougainvillea like in the front you see the yarrow
and Megara so those are the core plants so what makes it really fun is that we
have a focal point and you can do anything at home if you have a
decorative mailbox or a sculpture and then we just filled it with annual
plants in the same colors so if I had introduced another color here you might
be saying surely that’s way too much going on for a short little of her
swallowing space but really it’s just the same colors but different textures
come on close the cheek I want to show you how adorable this is now don’t
forget that the color of your house is also a part of the color palette of your
garden we have a gray house check this out by Kandra in silver so we’re
relating to to bringing in our yellow with biden’s is this like a totally
happy plant coreopsis and then just to give you a tip these are usually really
dark tones you’ve got the dark euphorbia you’ve got the osteo spermy
but when you add a pop of yellow variegated white a little euphorbia and
white and look at this cute little arm aria man you got a garden within a
little pot so anyways come on down watch us on home and family weekdays I’m here
to give you your garden tips and teach you how to grow some food and how to
live the life that’s enjoying everything under this Sun watch us on home and
family week things home our Channel 10 o’clock I’ll be there in the garden
