This past weekend was the kick-off of the big backyard makeover. It was a very long weekend with lots of hard labor but not really any results to show for it yet.
We did make some progress. The weekend was mostly spent cleaning up debris, leaves, tree roots etc. out of the yard. We also created a brick edge around the back of the yard to separate the line of trees from the main yard area. That project was a lot harder than what we anticipated.
All in all, three trips to Home Depot including two truck fulls of supplies. Two trips to the dump to get rid of truck loads of bushes, branches etc. And two small projects to check off the list.
Trip one to Home Depot
In the coming days we will be having a tree company come and clean up all the dead limbs in our trees, rent and rototill the backyard, purchase and lay sod.
