I didn't mean to leave you in suspense about our yard makeover. Life got really good and fun and blogging slipped by the wayside. It's super fallicious out here. Crispy leaves and cooler days, pumpkin and apples everywhere, Halloween costuming, and lots of other fun things for me.
Anyway, here's our stupendous new yard!!!!
Expanded back yard, rocks removed from this large tree and replaced with sod.
Rocks removed from two front sections surrounding porch, replaced with mulch.
Front tree area rocks removed, replaced with mulch, and front view of our new expanded backyard.
We are in love. I play out here with the boys every day, even though we have to stay off the sod. I was worried about the lack of privacy with our city code mandated style fence. Instead I enjoy waving to neighbors and seeing a wider view.
Lastly, here is a proud man.
Do you see the grass? On the right is the sod. On the left is the grass Ben has nurtured. He thinks his looks better, and he was beaming. Then I asked him to do a Hank Hill impression for the picture. Contextually appropriate, but doesn't convey his giddiness.
