Home Improvement: Front Yard Edition

Wow. It's finished. I'm so excited. Okay, so it's been done for a few weeks, and I'm just a slacker at posting. Such is life. Here's a refresher of what our yard looked like when we bought it:



And...*drumroll please* the finished product:


This is the front left flower bed you can't see in the above photo:




Not too shabby, eh? New flower beds with mow strips, our roses are no longer taking over the front window, new mailbox, grass on the front strip. I love it. One of our favorite evening activities is to lay on the lawn and let the kids jump over/around us and play on the grass. Ahhhh.... home, sweet home!

For those that are interested: more pictures, commentary, and all the in-between here.

Beautiful!! I wish I had the motivation to really work on our yard. It's hard to put in time when we're just renting (even if it is for 4 years). Looks so great!

Thanks girls! It definitely was a lot of work, and Sam definitely did the majority of it. Sometimes I wish I had a degree in landscape design. Maybe then I wouldn't kill my bushes. :)
