Pretty garden gates...

In a continuation of our front yard makeover, my husband just finished building the gates for our picket fence. I must confess I am seriously in love with the fence ~ and I think the pretty gates have only made it more adorable. I can’t wait for spring to finish planting a cottage garden in front of the fence. It’s already cute and welcoming ~ a lovely informal garden will only make it more so.

You can see the caution tape still up around the nearly-finished side walkway in the photos above and below. That section of fence on the other side of the side gate is the last to be finished. Once that is done, my husband will finish the walkway and the landing area and then get started on the last walkway, which will run around the flower bed in front of the porch. I just hope the weather holds out for him to finish it all. The other walkway may just have to wait until spring.

The front yard looks completely different than it did just a few months ago. I can’t wait to see what next year brings.

  1. So cute! If you have enough sun in the area, climbing roses would look amazing in front of the fence.

  2. That is absolute cottage perfection!
