A Breath of Fresh Air

Three and a half years after buying this house, we finally cleaned up the yard!  I had done a little to clean out a few things over the years, but my small efforts didn't make a big difference in the overall appearance of the lawn.

This week we brought out the professionals, and here are the results...

In the back yard, we had them take out everything that's not a tree or grass.  After they had removed everything, we actually discovered an small tree that we didn't know was there.  They'll also be treating the lawn throughout the year in hopes that the small amount of grass will spread to cover the spots where we removed plants.

In the front yard, there wasn't any existing grass, so we brought in sod.  I know you may think the green you see in the before pictures is grass--It's not.  There were some green weeds in our front yard, but no grass.

In the front, we replaced the existing flower beds that had a couple live bushes and some dead plants with these beautiful new plants.

Now we're all ready for Spring!  (Did you hear that weather... stop being bi-polar and stick with Spring please.)
