Transform Tuesday -- Front yard flower beds

I've mentioned before that when we bought this house 3 years ago it needed A LOT of work.  Well, the outside wasn't any different.  These flower beds still need some work and some rearranging, but they are WAY better than they were.  We'll call them a transitional transformation.

Before:  Huge bush with dying trees and sickly hostas.  By the way, when I started cleaning the beds out to get ready to plant I pulled 2.5 garbage cans of rocks out of the dirt.  These were not bathroom garbage cans, they wer outside cans.  Big ones.  I hate rocks.

After:  Green and luscious.  I revived those hostas too.  Moving them to the other side and spreading them out made a huge difference for them and for the flower beds.  Anyone have any suggestions?

What have you done for Transform Tuesday?  Link it up!

I have a transformation, but it won't be on my blog until Friday. I'll stop back on Friday and see if the link is open.

I'm visiting from Somewhat Simple. I'd love it if you'd stop by and link up to my Home and Family Friday Linky Party. I host each Friday. Hope you'll come join us!
