We spent the entire weekend out in the sun, which sounds like a nice time. It wasn’t.
Here I present to you, some ugly pictures of my yard.
Since there were a lot of perennial gardens, and I didn’t want to risk pulling plants that would come back (because I don’t know anything about gardening) we just kind of let everything die.
We started by getting rid of a lot of the planters, especially freestanding ones. We wanted to limit the number of plants to a semi-manageable amount.
I also raked out the beds lining the driveway and the raised vegetable garden beds. We actually have more work to do out here- taking out some beds because there are still too many- and painting our little outhouse (below). Max also has to finish a bit more raking in the back yard.
Our next project will be to put a fire pit in the back. I will update when that gets done.
