Inspired during our last visit to Paris, we made a plan to change our front yard.
About 7 Years ago we planted far too many flowers, plants and shrubs.
(it's difficult to create a garden out of nothing)
All the planting turned into a jungle and we could only sit on the bench under the kitchen window.
So we decided all plants had to go, only the hornbeam hedge and ginkgo tree remained.
The black soil we covered with gravel, that's all we had to do.
The result is great!
Oui, oui, our new small front yard feels like a 'petit Paris parc'.
