I promised to post pictures of our landscape overhaul, but frankly, it was an overwhelming and exhausting task. And now that it's over-it's exhausting and overwhelming to maintain. I AM very excited that it's done and I LOVE it, but forgive me, I don't have the energy for the slide show of pictures I promised. (though I should go take the pictures or someday I'll be sorry).
So here we are 11,000 sq. ft. of sod, 5 yards of mulch. 200 bales of pine straw. 10 gallons of paint. probably 100 or more plants, hundreds of dollars in water, and countless hours of sweat equity--here is my before and after view of my backyard. Someday I'll take a picture of the huge side yards and the patio that were overhauled also, but I'm too lazy to walk outside with the camera-- and besides it's dark-- and then I'd have to move the hose for the picture--and I don't want you to get too excited all in one day.
