Living in an apartment, we are a bit limited to what we can do to the front of our place to make it more appealing. But when Lowe’s put us up for the challenge we thought- hey, let’s brighten this dull front up! I mean we just did our daughter’s room and it has changed her bedroom for the better. So we did what would only fit the summer and add a bit of color- we planted flowers.
When my husband and I first moved in together, we lived in Pennsylvania and he did seasonal landscaping when he returned from the military. So I kinda lucked out because I have never so much as watered a plant. So of course, he taught me and Sofia a thing or two about flowers, gardening and how exactly to get these babies to grow.
As it turned out, our dirt was dry. There hadn’t been much plant activity going on in our front area so he had to do these technique of pulling all the dirt from the bottom and circling it with the top as well as watering it over and over, to get some moisture into the soil.
Then he noted that on the side of each flower pot, it had directions on how much space the plant would need to grow and he measured the plot accordingly. First up, the Asiatic Lily which we purchased for $24.98.
Which we followed with a Calibrachoa, purchased at Lowe’s for $9.98, but I can’t seem to find the link.
and also the Kalanchoe which we purchased for $9.98
Overall, for about $70, which included tools, we added a little color to our curb and Sofia and the man got some daddy-daughter time. Perfect summer activity for my little family.
