Spring cleaning in the back yard

Wednesday, April 03, 2013

Since the weather has been in the 50's and hopefully reaching low 60's this week, I have been in the back yard. This actually started about 2 weeks ago when my husband and I decided that our beat up and bottom rotting fence needed a revamp. After contacting a few companies and picking out our options we decided on a picket style with a color matching our house.

It is semi-private, allows for some breeze but keeps the neighbors dogs out of our yard. Picking up other people's canine mess is not my idea of a good time. So although we did not install the fence, we did decide on the design.

Then I reseated the walking pavers because some had settled and were uneven and uncovered my hostas. The fence guys were good about cleaning up their debris from the old fence but some of the extra dirt was just tamped down by the border and that is where my plants were growing. I also planted some new shade plants and set up our new off the ground, rotating compost bin.

Our next project will be starting soon. Remodeled bathrooms. We are combining 2 very small ones into a larger useable one. I worked with the architect to design that too although the design and remodel company will be doing the work.
