Front Yard Landscaping Job

Sunday, July 06, 2014

In early June, we started re-landscaping our front yard. It was looking trashy with plastic showing through some of the landscape rocks and weeks coming up everywhere. We also had railroad ties as part of the landscaping and were advised by the exterminators who treated our house for termites, to get rid of them - especially close to the house. We procrastinated for more than a year but finally decided to get it done this spring.

These are "before" pictures of the yard.

We tore out the railroad ties and put in blocks. We then landscaped the rest of the yard with a different color of rock. We had 9 yards of rock to spread!

Our grandson and I did most of the shoveling because of Dan's bad back! Talk about a workout! but it was worth it!

These are the "after" pictures!

    Your yard looks great, Grace! Wow that was a huge amount of rocks to move. Thank goodness your grandson was able to help you with that project. Getting rid of the timbers gave it a good updated look. Nice!
