As I just posted out on FB, I tip my hats to the men and women who do landsacaping for a living. TOUGH WORK! We had 4 areas in our front yard to put down new landscaping fabric and mulch down, and it took all of last weekend and today (Saturday) to get them all done! But it looks good, and so much better than the weed-invested and ugly little red rock mess that was there!
Started on the back yard late today -- around 2 HUGE rose bushes, so got cut up pretty good, but the fabric is all tacked down! I'll plan to mulch that in the AM...

After 3 days of landscape work outside in 80 and 90+ temps, I needed a work day to recover! But I have to say the landscape work my wife and I did really improved the looks of our front yard! The folks at Lowe's won't know what to do today if I don't show up, since I was there everyday for the past 4 days!
We have one more section out front to do. I think I have enough landscaping fabric to get it covered, but I used up all 50 bags of mulch I purchased last Friday so I will need to make another trip to Lowe's, just not today. I am going to the YMCA today -- I think it will be a strength training day as I am not sure my legs are up for a run. Plus, I plan to mow the back 40 this evening after the temps cool off some (it'll be close to 90F plus high dew point), and that will be more than enough leg work for today.
Well, OK, I guess I'd better actually do some work now....

In our front yard there are 4 distinct areas that required serious landscaping work. 2 of the 4 are done, and boy do they look nice! Besides weeds coming up, the former owners had used rock, so we put new landscaping fabric over the top of the rock and weeds, then covered that with approx. 3" of black mulch.
I have the third area all prepped, just need to put down fabric, etc. Not sure I'll get the 4th done this weekend, but it'll be a good task for next weekend.
Oh yeah, and I still have the back yard to do. Sigh....
