A couple of weeks ago, I shared my brand new landscaping in the front yard and today I wanted to highlight one of the products I got from Lowes that I really think will make a huge difference in the overall feel of my new yard. Disguising the floating fireplace was the main thing we wanted to accomplish in this endeavor and when we spotted the black metal trellis forms at Lowes, we knew they would be perfect for this. And it turned out to be just that!
There’s a hose spigot right under the fireplace, so I didn’t want to close that off. A hose comes in handy, even though I now have an irrigation system in place. There are plenty of times that a hose needs to come out, like for watering my urns on the front porch. Not to mention, sometimes newly planted shrubs need an extra watering, so I’ll be keeping an eye out for wilting plants. See that messy green hose behind the trellis?
Yep, right there? I found a way to get it up off the ground and much more tidy. And I finally get to use my iron pieces in the yard again. That cool armillary was a yardsale find in Birmingham.
A simple hose reel from Lowes was just the thing needed to put behind the trellis.
They are easy to set up and get the hose in place and now I can easily unwind and roll up the hose when I get it out in the yard.
The angyostar vines are looking beautiful and I can’t wait for them to grow even more and climb up that pretty black trellis.
They should grow in and spread out and up the trellis covering it eventually.
I think this is the perfect solution to a floating fireplace and it sure wasn’t that expensive. At $40 per panel, this trellis project was $160 at Lowes, not bad at all to disguise that floating fireplace.
Here are a few more updates of the yard and how pretty it’s all looking. Someone wanted a shot from the front porch, so here you go.
The Queen Mum Agapanthus are exploding in bloom and they are SO pretty.
Look at these delicate white blossoms.
Such pretty lavandar tips with the white and green, they are just gorgeous.
I’ve got some pretty plants in the urns on the front porch and they are a nice welcome.
The new yard and landscaping is coming along nicely. Luckily, we are getting lots of rain right now, so that is giving it all an extra boost of growth. I’ll be reporting in all along the way on how my garden is growing. I’m just happy to have solved the floating fireplace dilemma, thanks to Lowes!
