Yard Cleanup

Our yard was in desperate need of attention.  I don’t think it’s been properly maintained in a long time.  The side yard in front of the coach house was overgrown with blackberry bushes, other vines, rocks, and general debris.  Our front yard evergreen trees needed trimming, and the rear area of our driveway still had the remnants of an old wooden garbage bin that was partially destroyed to make way for our new electrical service.

We decided to tackle as much as we could this past weekend, as we had people coming to work on the water and sewer mains this week and there was no room to move.  Here are some before and after pictures:

Front yard:




Rear driveway (note the new BBQ, yey!):



I didn’t get a good picture of the rear yard, but can confirm we put out about 10 compost bags, and 6 bundles of tree trimmings.  The yard isn’t perfect, but it will suffice for now.

  1. The shot with the grill made me think about the brown trim on my own house. How many different shades of brown exterior trim paint do you have in the basement?
