What does your dream backyard look like?  We envision our ideal relaxation space to be reminiscent of a spa getaway to somewhere warm and tropical.  In fact, we dream of turning our backyard into the ultimate stay-cation retreat…  “Backyard-a Vallarta”.

Watch as Taniya Nayak from Curbside Chaos escorts the lucky winner of the ‘Bulbs. Dig, Drop, Done’ Contest – Ruth from Fairfax, VA – through the makeover process of her backyard.

What would WE do with $5,000.00 to get our dream backyard?

We would start by adding a pop of color to brighten up our relaxation space.  There is no better way to accomplish this than by using bulbs!  Bulbs are no-fuss flowers, perfect for fall planting.  Uncertain of what bulbs will grow best in your area?  So were we!  But, thanks to the Garden Guru we had multiple choices at our fingertips.

The Garden Guru Tool is located in the bottom left of the screen. This tool will help you figure out which bulb is perfect for your home depending upon where you live! Here the steps to take…

1 – Pick your Country
2 – Pick your location within that Country
3 – Choose the type of bulb you want to grow
4 – Check out the Planting Guide that shows you how to plant your bulbs.

Bulbs are extremely simple plants that can be used in a surprising number of ways.  Use them for anything from interior and exterior design, to creative gift-giving and decoration, to entertaining activities for children and families.  Bulbs go way beyond just gardening!

Meet Juliana, the fashionista!… an interior designer after our own heart.
