Yard Update

We have been working hard on our yard lately. Yesterday and today we put down weed barrier and shoveled 3 truckloads of bark onto the garden areas. I've got quite the sunburn to prove I was out there working for hours. :) Adding the bark sure made a visible improvement on the aesthetics of our yard though. We even got a couple of neighbors (who have never spoken to us in the 3 years we have been here) come over and tell us how nice our yard is looking.

We had some extra bark we piled in the front that we will use by the porch when our retaining wall is finished
View of our side yard It looks much betterThis picture is what it looked like 3 years ago. no trees, no shrubs, just lumpy weed dirt. It is so nice to have sprinklers, plants and a nice grassy place for the kids to play.
