Landscaping… I’m Not Gonna Lie!
Okay, here’s the thing. Moving is exciting, and great, and all of those positive things. But when you inherit this…
I’m not gonna lie… it helps you stand out on the block, and I don’t mean in a good way!
Luckily we were approached and asked if the yard ornament… oops, I meant ‘stand’, was for sale. And it definitely was! So that was easy come, easy go.
And so today was the day to begin tackling the rest.
Here’s a clue to what I was faced with…
Oh, the poor neighbours 😐
The ornamental grass is ours… waiting to be planted. The question is ‘where’? The sad looking specimen in the brown planter is also ours. Believe it or not, it was a thriving Bleeding Heart. If it survives, it’s actually a beautiful plant! But this terrain is solid rock underneath… we’ll have to finish the weeding to decide what to do 😉
So here’s where I started…
Lovely, isn’t it?
And I removed this stuff under the porch too. Why was it even here? Who knows?!
And those 5 gallon pails were full! One with drywall sealer, and the other with latex paint! Seriously. When I went to move them I was caught off guard. I thought they were just empty pails!
I worked for about 3 1/2 hours, and this is where I left off…
Hubby arrived home, and pitched in for the last hour. I’m so glad he did!
It’s supposed to rain tomorrow, but I really want to keep going.
From this shot, you can see that I really have to stay with the program!
Oh, and can you tell where the weeds were also pulled from the gravel area? You might have to scroll back to the first photo to see the proof!
Did I mention our poor neighbours? The work done today didn’t go unnoticed! We met both sets that border this lovely display. And they were clearly relieved to see something happening to the jungle they unwillingly share!
I still have a bunch more to do, but at least there’s been a start. Guess what hubby and I will be doing this weekend, weather-permitting… and yes, my fingers are crossed for the permitting part!
What would you do if your terrain was solid rock underneath… other than bringing in a few loads of top soil?
