No Turning Back Now


The rumble of big machines across our lawn this weekend signified the start of a landscaping project the scope of which has heretofore never been attempted......


at least not by us anyway.  
We've certainly dabbled in projects here and there and tackled some fairly extensive DIY jobs, but never, ever have we taken on something like this.  Which is why we've hired professionals.


Where there once was only a weedy hillside, there will soon be planting beds, paths, a flagstone seating area, a rock garden, a mixed hedgerow to shield the road, a waterfall trickling into a small pond, a sprinkler system, and a lawn that I think can legitimately be called lawn, 
not just green weeds posing as lawn.


I'll just keep that imagine in my head.
Because right now, as the rain begins to fall and our dirt turns to mud, I'm starting to think our weedy hillside maybe wasn't quite such an eyesore after all.

You go girl! Can't wait to see what it becomes. Glad I'm not paying for it : )

Oh, this is exciting! If it's not done in time for the reunion, we can always do some mud wrestling.

This is exactly the kind of project that thrills me! Good luck and I hope I get to see how it all turns out! L
