Oh What a Beautiful Morning!  Instead of a bright golden haze on the meadow, there is a death yellow-hue to the yard.  This could only mean one thing…Phase 1 of the Lawn Renovation is underway: the kill.

Ever since we moved in, we have struggled with our lawn of weeds, moss, and non-grass.  We have tried to turn a blind eye knowing we can’t do everything at once and just invite people over after dark so they can’t see it.  It’s time for a lawn, though.  So this fall we will attempt a lawn renovation including adding irrigation.  It’s the final step to our major yard projects and hoping going to be thick and lush by the time baby is frockling barefoot.

Here’s a glimpse back to last August/September when we were taking on other major yard projects: new driveway and tree removal.

From the Corner

Side yard

We used to only have a little parking pad in the back corner of the lot and would have to tramp across the yard into the back door.

Driveway:
CrossCreek Nursery installed the driveway, pavers, and surrounding landscape.  The drive now comes along the side of the house with pavers and the beginning and end, a new walkway around to the front of the house, and replacement front walkway in matching pavers.

New walkway into top of driveway
New Drive

Trees:
We then had a handful of trees removed around the house.  We also took the opportunity to pull up the large planting beds that were around the trees and shrink them to a simple ring around the two remaining trees.

Now:
Here’s the house today with removed trees, driveway, and bright new paint job.

Soon we won’t be the ugly yard on the corner and it will be wonderful!
