Landscaping Diary – Weeks 4/5

Landscaping Diary – Weeks 4/5


Well, almost all of the shutters. I still have 5 more to go, but the ones on the front and east side of the house are up and they look great! I’m so happy with how they turned out. I think the gray looks like it’s always been there – in fact, I have a hard time even remembering what the white looked like!

I think the gray shutters really help accent the green siding and tie in the dark roof to the overall color scheme of the house. And, we chose a softer gray with a green base which I think does the trick perfectly. Then, add in the dark brown mulch and green grass and everything really meshes well together.

Remember where we were only a few short months ago?

And here it is now…

Things are going well outside – now inside is the problem… haha. More on our next big project later this week (we’re almost halfway done with it already!). But, I’ll leave you with our cute clematis that is doing so well out in front! Some gorgeous purple blooms are emerging and I love how it accents the colors on the house.

    Hello! I have the same color siding and I’ve been looking to change my dreadful red shutters to a better matching color. I really like the grey and green together. Could I have the name of the color grey you used?
