Taming an overrun yard...
that was our challenge last weekend and so far, the backyard looks 10x better.
Here is a little glimpse at all our hard work.
We basically cleared almost 99% of everything out. With poison ivy and other nameless weeds growing, we wanted to start fresh and get ready to design our backyard with a clean slate. Although, I did find a huge patch of fresh mint! It smelled amazing when we were working and made me crave a mojito.
So... I know you want to see the sexy beast who did most of the grueling work. :)
We had these huge ugly shrubs and trees in our front yard that Zach took a chainsaw and ax to.
I was busy tearing down wallpaper, but came out to get a glimpse of my man at work.
These vines are all over the fences by our house. They look pretty cool, but are about the hardest things to remove! I like how they appear to have little "feet" wherever they grow.
The hands of one of our hardworking helpers...Momma.
Lots of work was accomplished last week, but there is still so much to do...tad overwhelming at times.
I'm hoping to finish painting and lining the cabinets of my pantry today and get started on spackling the downstairs walls. There are so many holes & divots in the walls!
Stay tune for more before and after pictures.
Feel free to follow me on Facebook & Twitter see more pictures and hear how the renovation is going.
