Garden Start

Cue peaceful sunrise music...This is the view from the front door at 6:37am.

 Moments later the cavalry have arrived to demolish all the overgrowth and weedy trees in our yard. 
 The fence is down and they took it away. Yay! It looked good in the listing pictures but was a mess in reality. Behind the fence much of the bamboo was cleared out, but some remains. It will stay because it hides another mess behind it, concrete boulders retaining the football field behind.

 The wood chipper eats the last of the large trees. 
Friday was the last sunny day and after a rainy weekend the yard is a muddy mess. It is so much bigger than we realized now that the fence is down and the perimeter cleared. We have sunny areas, and quite shady spots, wet, dry, low and high.
The landscaper, Nick will return today to discuss plans for the yard. A million ideas have been swirling in my head and I really don't know what to do. Hopefully Nick will solve some of the mysteries.


  1. You're on the end of a cul de sac. How perfect!

  2. Space! (The final frontier ��)

    How exciting to have a blank canvas--and professional help. Looking forward to seeing the transformation.

    Will there be a new fenced area for the doggos?

  3. Nothing like a clean slate to get the imagination going. Exciting!

  4. Can't wait to see how it evolves. You always have the greatest yards/plants!
