This past weekend was "project weekend". Between the big chair project on Friday and a monster of a day landscaping on Sunday, we are exhausted!
When we bought our house last August it had zero landscaping. So we finally took the plunge this weekend and spent 7 HOURS on Sunday landscaping the front. It was the most manual labor I've ever done and I can hardly move now. Every muscle in my body is sore. But it was all worth it!
This is what our house looked like before (taken last August)
This is how it looks now
It looks a little sparse from this view. But it needs room to grow. Most of the plants will double in size over time. Here are the rest of the pictures. It looks better up close.
That's it! Don't you LOVE it?!
I LOVE it.
I don't love the way my body feels though. Did you know that ripping up sod is really, really hard? Did you know that shoveling 2 cubic yards of mulch out of the back of a pick-up truck will make your arms feel like jello? Did you know that digging holes in dirt that feels like clay will make you feel very old the next day? Trust me.
