Yard Projects

It is finally turning into summer and we are now juggling work, longer workouts, and land scaping projects.

Our summer goal for our home is to make a substantial change to the back yard.   It has a very large grass area that takes a lot of time to mow and a lot of cash to water.

We are going to make a smaller grass area, add more fruit trees, move flower beds, put in a raised vegtable garden bed, add some crushed stone walkways, et

The biggest obstacle for progress is that I struggle with how to lay things out and I wish I had Joanne's brother Pat's vision.  Pat's yard in Montana is beautiful!

One of the things that cracks me up ( and sometimes makes me want to swear or cry ) is that when you decide to put something some where, there will be an unforseen obstacle.

Happy Summer Projects to you all !

  1. We've been playing for three days, but reality will set in tomorrow. Our backyard projects aren't as ambitious as yours. It's time for the fence project to get going. Ron digs. I paint. And brother-in-law Dale will help make cement, dig more holes and set the posts. At least that's the plan.I'll be thinking about you, as we hit this project..Peggy
