How to get rid of your lawns – with decorative shutters
It was a beautiful spring day in 2017.
I was having lunch with friends and family, when I noticed that the yard was getting a little bit bigger and greener.
The grass had gotten a little brown, but it was still a pleasant shade of purple, not a full-on, super-pale purple.
I noticed the trees, too, but they were a little more compact.
The foliage was coming back.
I turned on the sprinkler and let it work.
The garden looked like it was going to be great.
After I let it, I thought, Wow, the lawn is definitely going to look great!
I decided to go out and buy some decorative shuttters.
I found some for $4.00 on Amazon.
I took one out and attached it to my porch fence, and let the sprinklers work.
I thought it would be cool to get my lawn into a little garden show.
I put some flowers on my lawn, and started to decorate the patio.
I wanted to add some new plants.
My wife, who works in marketing, was a little hesitant about the idea of spending money on lawn care.
We wanted to keep things as natural as possible, and the plan was to keep the plants in their original locations, away from our home.
The flowers are a little flowery, and they’re not too dramatic, so it was a good choice for a backyard.
Since the lawns are going to get a little bigger and more green, I decided that I wanted them to look like the real thing.
So, I cut the decorative shutts off the end of the garden.
I also attached some small flower bulbs to the ends of the shutters to look as if they were blooming.
Then, I trimmed the leaves off the flowers.
Once I was satisfied with the look of the patio, I started to paint the garden with the decorative foliage.
I decided on a green color, and I used a paintbrush and a paint sponge.
It’s not the best paint, but I’m a pretty good painter, so I was able to do a good job.
It took a couple of coats, but the finished result was very nice.
I painted it all over the house, including the front door.
As for the lawn, I have no idea what I’ll do with it.
This post has been updated to clarify that there was a price hike on decorative shuttered gardens, not decorative exterior Shutters.
