Amazing Home Makeovers
Goal: Garden in a Weekend
Tackle that bare spot in your yard, and transform it from boring to something to cheer about.
Step No. 2
On graph paper, sketch the area to scale, and draw circles to represent the mature sizes of plants to be added. Consult The Southern Living Garden Book for plant ideas and mature sizes. Your sketch will serve as your shopping list. Nurseries start receiving plants for the weekend on Thursday, so shop early for best selections. When adding them to your yard, the biggest plants go in first, annuals last. Mulch and water well.
