Two weekends of weed whacking grass and weeds and other undesirables growing in the yard later … we’re officially ready for new plants and to finally finish the front yard overhaul. Thought we had hired someone to do this for us? Me too, but that’s another story. How about some progress photos?
See those plants in the corner there?
They’re my new arborvitaes. They’ll live on the right side of the house, and once they grow to the full height of 30+ feet, will balance out the grade change of our lot.

How about this weedy spot to the right of the porch?
It’s looking much better these days:

On the right side before:
From the other direction:
Much, much better.
This weekend you’ll find us planting approximately three dozen shrubs and trees and flowers. We’ll also be busy spreading the 10 cubic yards of mulch we’re having delivered tomorrow (yikes!). If we live to tell the tale, I’ll be back with a full report next week!
