Landscaping Ideas

Let's face it, the Disney parks and resorts are beautiful! The landscaping may not be the biggest part of the parks compared to the rides, shops and characters, but it plays a huge role in overall feel. Everything is so well manicured and clean! In May, Epcot has a lawn and garden show right in the park. This year, I took along my camera for some ideas!

Who wouldn't want one of these? Outdoor teepee guarded by climbing Confederate Jasmine

Everything you need for salsa - tomato plants, onion, cilantro and tomatillo in ONE container!

Awesome container gardens! Salsa, Soup and Salad containers
Another great idea for kids - a tunnel made up of bamboo plants tied together 

Mother's Day present idea? Birdhouse made from a used milk carton
For our backyard: tall trees surrounded by close-growing ferns and a few bushes. Simple but very green!
Currently, our backyard is a large piece of square green with not a lot going on but some weeds! We plan to incorporate a few of these ideas, as well as a new patio, to make it a little more inviting. A nice place to sit back with some sweet tea and watch the kiddos play!
