House History

I found this photo on the city website. A exciting glance at what the house looked like 10-20 years ago.
Picture from

Initially it doesn’t look that different. Once you compare it to a photo of what’s been done since we’ve moved in it’s pretty apparent what has been changed. There isn’t a flag stone porch or path in the picture and there are large yew bushes under the windows. When we moved in the front garden had a white star magnolia, pachysandra and 3 dozens hostas. There was also a reallllllyyy ugly crab apple tree in the front yard. This is missing from this picture so it must have been planted afterwards. The crab apple was 15ft high when we took it down so I think at least 10 years have elapsed since the photo. The juniper under the lamp post is there, but no garden beds flanking the walk way – we put those in. There was also a 50 ft conifer on the left side of the yard that was removed by previous owners.

    Love the curb appeal! We just got new sidewalks so now I want to plant on both sides like you did. Great job!
