I didn't take any pictures last week during my wallowing, so I don't really have proper before photos for you of the never ending landscaping project that we've been working on. Here's a very old picture that shows the area we've been working on. Look how young SB and the Princess are!
Those shrubs up against the house blocked the view and had to go. Plus the hill had crept up onto our house over the years with the dirt now 8" above our home's foundation. Our yard needed regrading, and the weeds had gotten out of control. Check out the craziness behind the hostas.
CG & WD spent countless man hours digging out our yard, one shovelful at a time, and built a new retaining wall using stone from our neighbor's yard that she wanted hauled away.
An afternoon was spent weeding(I cleaned up about 15 sq feet before the mosquitos chased me inside,) and we picked up a couple of vans full of mulch. We were lucky enough to find several busted open bags that were only $1.50 each.
And here's where it stands right now. I found boxes of solar landscape lights clearanced at Lowe's, and they now light up the pathways. We still need to seed our lawn, but we're getting there.
Thanks for popping in and working in the yard with us(mostly CG & WD, but I kept them well fed.)
