I am back today to
I managed to find a couple of Befores from before I lost my camera before the work started. (Did you follow that?) Sorry that some of the befores has a picture of A in it, but I think the focus on that photo shoot were the boys not my hideaous backyard.
So here we go!
BEFORE: This is A's buddy picking "flowers". We hadn't cut the crass in a long, long time!
We didn't bother cause we knew the construction trucks would be destroying it anyways.
(yes, that's our excuse, and we are sticking with it!)
AFTER: So much better! Look no "flowers"!
AFTER: Here's another shot abit further back with the "cottage" that I can't get rid of because it was S's and then H's and now A's. I'm hoping he outgrows it in the next 10 yrs. We've had it for 10 yrs now!
If you notice we cleaned up the bushes around pool and extended the fencing too.
BEFORE: This was the walkway/pond. Right behind the boys was the end of the rotting deck at the back of house. This.
swamp pond made me jump anytime the kidlets went near it. I was always afraid someonewould fall in. In this picture the boys were trying to catch the Koi fish (whichare now living in my friends much cleaner pond)
AFTER: Aaaawww! Clean!
BEFORE: ummm... I'm stumped. Don't know what to say!
AFTER: So much better. We removed a tree and the dead bushes at the back corner.
AFTER: We removed the dead bushes and put in the fence. All the flagstone is from around the
swamo pond. The grass needs to be cut, but we don't to kill it in case it has not taken root yet. Anyone know how long I should wait? I picture a hammock in that corner.
And now a couple of little details.
