We've been working on cleaning up the yard........ who knew there was SO much garbage!!?? I usually take before and after pics - but not so much this time. I don't think I realized what a difference the cleaning / tidying would make.
But here is a pic of the last bit of mess.......
AND here's what it looks like now.
There are 4 yards of top soil ordered - and a couple of yards of gravel ........ We were hoping it would be here yesterday but no no....... maybe today?!
Mostly we're gonna lay grass seed..... but over by the small shed (that houses the bikes and the snowblower ) is a low spot that looks more like a swamp than grass or garden - le sigh. After some research I discovered something called a rain garden.
We've filled up most of the depression with sand .... next we're gonna add earth and sand mixed and top it off with gravel. Then add rain loving plants and hopefully we'll have less swamp and more natural rain garden - we're hoping something like this........
The sun is shining finally!! BUT we wait for the top soil........... it may have taken us a week to get the inside of the house done - it's gonna take a whole lot longer to get the outside done.
