If you have ever been to our house then you know that the front steps leading up to our front door were a mess. They were very uneven and needed to be redone. I didn't get before picture, but I took one soon after Rich started the work.
You can see where he started digging to build the new steps… the old steps have dirt piled on them that he dug out of the ground to build the new steps. You can kind of see how crooked the old steps were.
Here are the new steps all beautifully built. Rich put a wall where the old steps were and filled it in with dirt. The flowers were waiting to be planted.
This is up at the top of the stairs, it goes along the front of our house.
Deciding where to put the flowers.
I don't have great luck with flowers, they never seem to do very well for me. Instead of just using the dirt that Rich dug up from where our new steps are, I thought it would be best to use some Miracle-Gro. Some good products to use are: Shake n’ Feed Moisture Control All Purpose Plant Food and Moisture Control Potting Mix or LiquaFeed All Purpose Plant Food Advance Starter Kit. We shall see how it goes If you have your own little fun garden projects, you can check out The Gro Project to start your own story.
Here are the completed steps with the flowers planted.
I'm hoping the flowers will do well! Don't forget to check out Miracle-Gro on Pinterest too, so you can get some gardening ideas!
