We have been working hard. Lots of yard things are being accomplished.
On monday I removed the old edging on the flower beds and replaced them with a simple brick style edging in a charcoal grey. It looked good. This weekend, dh took out the dirt and we added some rocky mountain lime stone(has tans and browns in color as well as the typical grey), and we picked up some garden mums and planters. The beds look fantastic.
In the back yard, dh moved some sidewalk blocks into the dog run as they dogs had killed the grass and were always muddy, and being small dogs that are in the house, it means alot of baths, meaning alot of work for mom. There is a small corner of grass left, this is where they are doing their business..lol. Make clean up very easy. THey seem to enjoy the cool concrete as they a stretching out on it relaxing.
Also, where the sidewalk blocks were, si where we are building our deck. Dh has put the first support up. And Wednesday we are building the deck.
Next weekend, we may be doing more to the front yard. We have an large area with shale, that looks pretty sad. We will move the shale out of that area, and put it around the raised gardens in the back yard, it needs something interms of mulch, since we are moving the shale anyway, we'll make just repurpaose it rather than give it away. And in the front we'll get more of the limestone and properly edge the areas. We use part of it as a parking pad. However when we sell, that area will have planters put there. So I will take pictures this fall as when we list I think it'll be still under 2 feet of snow.
Oh, we are getting a company in to remove some stumps in the front too. So the yard is about 50% complete now. And in 2 weeks I imagine will be done!!!
