I have been struggling with an area of my yard since I moved in here.
There is a raised area between the house and garage
that transitions the levels from driveway up to back yard.
A couple of years ago, nephew-in-law Mark helped me fix part of this area by putting in some stone pavers and stairs. But the raised area, which had a layer of small rock was mostly weeds.
Today, I had a landscaper come and fix my problem, and am I every happy!
|I was not winning the war on weeds|
|There were hostas, but not thriving hostas.|
|The rock along the steps didn't really have an end.|
|So, the first job was to shovel out the old.|
|The landscape cloth and some rocks to hold it down.|
|Now a nice border of rocks at the back edge of this area which will work great for the lawn guys and a weed whip.|
|These two big rocks were already there.|
|Now new river rock|
|Nice border and new rock|
|Now a few more boulders were added|
|Now I added a few colorful pots.|
|Nice and tidy now.|
|It is so clean and such a better first impression of my digs.|
|The after and before make me very happy.|
|Dad and Ev and I call this the 'red room' and Dad really enjoys sitting here to look at the back yard and relax.|
So, now I will have Mark help me with another project as this one is done done done.
Oh year, 4 trees will be planted later in the fall, I'm very excited about that as the trees will be 12 footers and the one in the back yard will be a blue spruce.
Of course I'll post pictures of that change here as well.
