Front Yard Reveal

The title of the post is a little misleading - we don't have a front yard. We have a front patio and a strip of dirt. But, work with what you have, right?

So, to better define the property line (and discourage people from walking on our front patio) I had a fence installed. Nice, right?

Yeah, our house is gray on gray on gray, but I'm ok with that. Not a high priority for me - I figure it's a neutral background waiting for me to accessorize it.

Here's how it looks from the house side:
A reminder of the before:

To help with the accessorizing, I dug up the strip of dirt, which turned out to be almost completely pulverized gravel. No wonder nothing wanted to grow in it besides weeds.

yucky dirt - but it's good for filling in holes in the driveway!
Since the strip has poor drainage I filled it with potting soil and watered in some seeds.

I already have a few sprouts, yay!
