Hi there! We're far from finished restoring and refurnishing our 1954 home in the Netherlands (we do it thoroughly), but I do like to get some suggestions on how to give our front garden/patio some curb appeal.
It's about 10ft deep and 24ft wide, which includes a parking spot. It's faced south, so gets a lot of sun all day, the soil is really sandy and the dutch weather is rainy and windy. Temperatures range from 5F to 100F(in the shade). There are a lot of alders down the street, so when fall comes, all is covered in leaves and props. We have a wonderfull backyard so something low maintanance would be nice.
I love the Ceanothus Dark Star in front of the window and the green japanese maple on the corner.
Do not ask me why the previous owners put orange rooftiles in their frontyard, we've found quite a lot of other mysteries here! We've painted the woodwork a warm grey and I might repaint the front door (color didn't turn out to be what I expected). And yes, we'll have curtains one day, ha! And we'll re-do the doorstep and the terracotta walltiles will be painted charcoal.
All suggestions and ideas are welcome, I'm looking forward to reading them!
