Simple Country Farmhouse Landscaping Ideas with Stone Flower Bed Edging
I am so excited for today’s post because it’s all about simple country farmhouse landscaping ideas and inspiration! Spring has sprung in the Carolinas y’all!! Recently we made a trip out to our local Lowe’s to start planning for some yardwork and landscaping updates around the farmhouse! Up until now, we haven’t done much in terms of landscaping. So this year I’m excited to start really adding more curb appeal to the front yard and the exterior of our home! I’ve been really drawn to the look of gardens and landscaping with stone edging lately. And I’m excited to share some of my ideas and inspo as we continue planning for some simple country landscaping updates around our farmhouse!
Faux Stone Bordering Flower Bed & Gravel Path
This photo was the photo that started it all y’all! I discovered these faux stone landscaping border rocks while on Pinterest and the photo stopped me in my tracks!! I love the color, shape, and size of these stones. And I also love how natural they look in this landscaping! I have been looking for similar photos and ideas ever since… Keep scrolling with me and let me show you what I’ve found! Click any of the photos below to see the original sources.
Cobblestone Edged Beds & Limelight Hydrangeas
The hydrangeas in this photo were what initially caught my eye! But just look how pretty they are with that cottagey cobblestone border!! I have been searching for “cottage gardens” online, and I’ve found that what comes up is often a little too overgrown for my taste. Not to mention that we live on the NE Cape Fear River in eastern NC, and snakes are just a part of life here! So I need our landscaping to be a bit more tidy and tame. And these flower beds are just whimsical enough, but also clean enough that I think I could do something like this around our farmhouse!
Natural Stone Edge Landscaping
I love the stones in this photo and how natural they look in the landscaping! Something about the rounded stones really appeals to me. And I also love how the flower beds themselves are arranged with lots of curves and movement to them as they wind along down the line of the fencing. The curves are something I can see
Country Farmhouse Landscaping with Found Creek Rocks
The stones in this landscape edging have a pretty cool story! The homeowner’s husband actually gathered and collected them from a nearby creek until they had enough to use all around their flower beds and along the gravel walkway. Such a simple look, but perfect for country farmhouse landscaping!
Large Stones Bordering Flower Beds
The large landscaping stones bordering the flower beds in this photo just look like they were meant for this country setting! I honestly think the appeal of using stones in country farmhouse landscaping is that it is a natural material. It’s a material I can see my grandparents or ancestors finding nearby, near the river maybe, and using because it’s what they had access to. That’s a big part of why I am drawn to the stones and the landscaping ideas in these photos!
Simple Stacked Stone Flower Bed Edging
While I love the rounded stones, I also love the look of the pretty stacked stones in these photos! It’s dressy enough without being too formal for my taste. And those hydrangeas are just so pretty!!
French Country Farmhouse Landscaping Ideas with Stone Edging and Pea Gravel Path
I saved my favorite inspo pics for last y’all! I dream of having a green house here at the farm one day, and this one is just so dreamy!! The pea gravel pathway and the stone lined flower gardens are french country farmhouse landscape perfection! Our priority right now is getting flower beds put in around the farmhouse. But eventually we will also want to add in pathways from the front porch steps to our pumphouse and to the driveway. And so that’s something I am keeping in the back of my mind as I plan for the flower beds and landscaping around the farmhouse because I want all of that to tie in together. And these photos really help me see the vision of what updates like this could look like here at the farm!
I hope this post was inspiring to you! Writing it was definitely inspiring for me!! Just seeing the possibility and the potential of what our yard could look like with some love and a little sweat equity makes me want to get out there and get my hands dirty. I’ll be sure to update you here on the blog, as well as on my Instagram, as we work on adding our own simple country farmhouse landscaping updates here on the farm. Thank you so much for stopping by the blog today, and as always, thank you so much for following along…
