Been very busy working on the front area of my yard, trying to spruce it up a little. My bestie helped me out soooo much the past two weeks (he’s a doll!) while he was on vacation to boot (some vacation!) such a sweetie! We chopped and pruned trees for a few days, I can’t believe how much comes down and how much you are left with to send to recycle or compost. Wow! Was a big job and I know I am glad it’s done…. will only have to bring them to the curb for the chipper. I can’t wait for that to happen, looking at the piles here and there are becoming annoying, Ooops.
We worked in the hot humid heat, transplanting my “Greshem” and “Snowmound” bushes to make a more appealing landscape.
You can actually see that I have a walkway and a porch now. I think it’s much more welcoming, yet I still have my privacy if I choose to sit out front.
Transplanting 10 of those bushes was grueling work, I still have two more to get moved, but we are taking a break, LOL! I redid the walkway, I like to do things myself, or at least if I think I can do it, I will most certainly try it. I researched many “How To” sites, and doing the walkway was pretty much simple, lots of hard work but, when you do the work yourself, it is so much more rewarding. Plus it’s saving you lots of CASSSSH!
I still have many areas to landscape and well “Make” a more attractive space. It will take time, next my plan is to install a small simple pond where the bushes used to call home, I think a pond is so tranquil and it would make a lovely addition to the front porch area. I will post pictures as soon as I can.
