Adulting: Shopping at Lowe's Canada

So the first time in my adult life, I have a lawn & backyard which requires maintenance. I grew up in house which was a part of the condominium complex. So all my parents had to do was pay the complex monthly and they would take care of everything outside. They took care of the grass, shovelled snow, paint and even planted trees/flowers. Now as a married woman....  although I don't have to mow the lawn or shovel snow, it is my responsibility to try to keep the house as warm and inviting as can be!

I was sent a Lowe's Canada Spring/Summer Style Guide for inspiration. Which literally made me want to overhaul my whole house and start over. The emphasis was on 4 patio trends: Metro Modern, Renewed Formality, Gracious Living & Cuban Cool. Each theme takes the guess workout of the stress of finding decor that works together. Plus it's exclusive to Lowe’s Canada.

Here are some of my favourite looks:

Colour anyone?

This is a dream!

My backyard is horrible right now, I will spare you a picture. I decided go with the front of the house since that is a visual point that people mostly see when they drive-by. I decided to go to Lowe's at Markham Road and Steeles on Victoria day. Which I might add I am happy that the garden centre was open. With a giftcard that Lowe's Canada provided me with!

My full cart!

We decided to go with two Azura Tall Urns (usually $14.99 CAN) which were actually on sale! Now for the flowers (Begonias) part, I did something different. I bought to hanging planters for the urns. Why? I just liked the arrangements better than the potted one.  Just a preference.

Just for photo purposes:

At first I thought it was a good idea to have two different types of plants but I am slowly rethinking that one so I'll probably end up going back to get the pink plants and putting up the hanging planter.

How are you planning to update your outdoor space for the summer?


  1. Your dream & my dream match! I love that look for my backyard!

  2. Living in Florida it's so hard to keep annuals alive for more than a month!! It's either too hot or too much rain BUT I love shopping the beautiful flowers at Lowes and HD. So what if I'm there every 6 weeks!

  3. Those flowers are beautiful and give a nice brightness to your front door. I definitely plan to do something similar to spruce up the front door of our house. Also a summery wreath as well.

  4. I love Lowes. They have great selections for re-doing your backyard. It seems like you enjoy all the goods they offer. Thanks for sharing.
