Landscaping Our Front Yard: Extras

Aside from the flower beds against the front of the house, we also landscaped around the new light post and mailbox. We replaced the mailbox months ago, and I’ve been eager to get my hands on it for a few final touches. A pair of Daylilies and a Clematis did the trick!

It wasn’t ten minutes before the Clematis had found the mailbox post and was already climbing away. I can’t wait to see this guy all full and lush with purple flowers!

Since the house and mailbox will have so much color we opted to do white at the post light, not to distract from it.

We planted a trio of tall Delphinium Summer Starts to surround the post and compliment it’s height.

It seriously is beginning to feel like a completely different house around here :)

Enjoy the weekend!

    Are you staking your clematis to anything to help it climb? We just planted one as well, and everyone keeps telling us we need to add a stake or narrow trellis to help it climb the mailbox. Not sure if we will or not!

      The clematis came with a mini trellis, only about 18″ tall, that we planted against the mailbox to help it grow. Other than that, we’re just letting it find it’s own way. So gar, so good :) Hope that helps!
