Tackle it Tuesday ~ A flower bed

Tackle It Tuesday Meme I thought it would be fun to join in with "Tackle it Tuesday" so here is my tackle:
This is what the side of our garage looked like. We had without thinking let our sprinklers splash on it all last summer and since we have hard water and a white house the results were not to good! What was especially bad was that this was the side of our house/garage that faced the road so everybody saw it. We did have the orange on the back side a little as well but not as much.

We have put a lot of scrubbing into it (using "Whink" and an "Earth Stone") and I decided to try to finish the job today. It isn't quite perfect yet (an I am not sure I will ever get it perfect) but at least people won't look at our house and have "orange" be their first thought.
My other tackle for today was to put in mulch around all of our perennial flowers. The job is done! Yea! Last Friday the kids and I had put in the edging and done most of the weeding. I do enjoy having a pretty and well kept flower bed.
Here is a close up of some of my perennial bachelor buttons that were hiding.

Looks great!

Just for future reference....you can presure wash the siding with a bit of bleach....it works quick and without any scrubbing. We have to do it every other year.

I love your flowers. They are so beautiful.

Thanks to all of you.

Robin thanks for the tip. I am not sure why we didn't think of using bleach, we tried all sorts of stuff but not that!
