Op de tuin

For most of my adult life I have lived in an apartment and someone else took care of the landscaping and the garden. When I moved to the Netherlands that all changed. Now we have a house with a little garden that needs a lot of help: trimming, weeding, planting and general cleaning. Over the winter it was too cold to do anything in the garden but now that it is spring, Mike and I can begin to fix it up.

The stone tiles need to be cleaned.

I also discovered that the lanterns are all rusted so just removing the wax and replacing the candles won’t work. We also need some chairs.
Mike wants to put in a chiminea and plant some mint maybe a couple other herbs.

Our front yard is a little overgrown even after trimming the bushes. However, the front yard requires less work than the garden.

Here is my ideal renovation for the garden:

Wish me luck, I’ll keep you updated on what we do with the garden.
