Where's your green thumb?

We were bold in painting our house white. It doesn't fit the beautiful rock and brick homes that surround us, but we thought we would go for it. As you saw in blinded by the WHITE, and again below, the dirt yard was unsuccessful in bringing out the "pop" of white in our home.

"Grass" was the real pop we needed. Although neither of us have green thumbs, we are excited to see how well our interior design sense can be transferred to our front flower and plant beds.

Currently the grass has a golden hue, however, with the help of our well it should be green soon.

Any Suggestions?
