On Saturday, Tal and I spent 7 hours digging up trees and pulling weeds, as well as laying landscape fabric and spreading mulch.
Here's what our yard looks like today:
In the flower bed to the right of our front steps,
Tal and I pulled weeds and then laid landscape fabric:
On the side of our house, several trees were overgrown
from lack of maintenance over the last few years:
Tal removed 4 overgrown trees, which will give the
remaining trees plenty of space to flourish.
At the yard waste landfill, our family dumped all of our yard debris...
...and got a truckload of mulch.
For a couple hours, Tal and I worked together to rake
the mulch into the wheelbarrow and dump it in the flower bed
and on the side of the house:
This evening, Tal dug 4 holes and planted the
boxwood and gardenia bushes below:
Now our 2012 curb appeal project is...done!
Stay tuned for photos of our final reveal!
