SUMMER PROJECT

3 Comments

THIS PAST SUMMER BEAU & I FOCUSED ON FINISHING OUR BACKYARD. WE STARTED OUT BY PUTTING UP A FENCE. THANKS TO BEAU, MY DAD & MY BROTHER RYAN IT ALL CAME TOGETHER SMOOTHLY.
THE DAY AFTER THE FENCE WAS DONE, I WENT TO THE NURSERY AND BOUGHT A BUNCH OF ITEMS AND PLANTED THEM ALONG THE BACK FENCE.
THE NEXT FOCUS WAS BEHIND OUR GARAGE WHERE IT WAS A DIRT PATH. WE WANTED TO MAKE IT A NICE LITTLE GARDEN PATHWAY SO THE KIDS COULD GO BACK THERE. BEAU AND I DID THE HARD PART TOGETHER. WE LEVELED OFF ALL THE DIRT AND BROUGHT IN SEVERAL BAGS OF SAND TO MAKE IT PERFECTLY LEVEL. WE BROUGHT IN OUR CONCRETE SQUARES AND OUR PEBBLE STONE AND MEASURED EVERYTHING OUT INTO THE PATTERN WE WANTED.
I ADDED A GARDEN BORDER WITH PAVERS THAT MATCH THE ROCK ON OUR HOUSE.
BEAU TAUGHT ME HOW TO DO DRIP LINES SO I INSTALLED THOSE ALONG THE BACK OF OUR GARAGE AND THROUGHOUT MOST OF OUR BACK AND SIDE YARDS. I SPENT THE LAST FEW MONTHS OF SUMMER SLOWLY ADDING A PLANT HERE AND THERE. I CAN’T WAIT TILL NEXT SUMMER TO SEE HOW EVERYTHING FILLS IN.
THANKS TO MY SISTER IN LAW MISTY, SHE HELPED US GET THE PEBBLE STONE AND ESPECIALLY THANKS TO MY BROTHER RYAN & MY DAD, WHO HELPED US PLAN EVERYTHING OUT AND GAVE US GREAT IDEAS ON OUR PROJECT. AS YOU CAN SEE FROM THE PICTURES OUR BACKYARD HAS COME A LONG WAY. MY NEXT STEPS IN THE BACKYARD ARE TO MOVE OUR AIR CONDITIONER TO THE SIDE OF OUR HOUSE.(IT IS SUCH AN EYE SORE AND IT IS NOISY TOO). ONCE WE MOVE THE AIR CONDITIONER, I WOULD LIKE TO ADD A WATER FEATURE. I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO CHANGE OUT OUR WOOD STAIRWAY TO SOMETHING MORE MODERN. LASTLY I WOULD LIKE TO ADD EITHER ROCK OR MORE STUCCO TO COVER UP ALL OF THE CONCRETE FOUNDATION THAT SHOWS. WE LOVE SPENDING TIME IN OUR LITTLE BACKYARD! I LOVE HAVING HOUSE PROJECTS! THANKS FOR LETTING ME SHARE OUR SUMMER PROJECT WITH YOU.
