This spring has brought on yet another huge project that we have chosen to do ourselves.  Would someone please remind me why I do these things!  Oh, yea……it costs less to do it yourself.  Guess that is why the shows on DIY and HGTV are so popular.  Doing it yourself doesn’t look that hard……but it is.

It is kind of a lie for me to say “we” in this instance because “The Husband” did 99% of the work.  I did the fun part, design and shop.  I did help out with the grass removal from the beds, but in the grand scheme of things, it wasn’t that much.  We spent an entire weekend (and I mean entire) from 8 am each morning until 5 or 6 pm each day with an additional 3 evenings during the week getting this much done.

A friend suggested that I take before and after photos.  So that’s what I’m doing.  Here are the photos of the progress to date……more to come.

The “Before”

Delivery of the dirt and mulch

Let the work begin!

(I guess I did do more than pull out dead grass)

(Oops….there is a sprinkler line there, and there, and there….)


All planted…soon to add the color

Still have the other big bed to complete……stay tuned!


I am thankful for……..

The  gentle rain to water my new plantings.

  1. I must say, as a lot as I enjoyed reading what you had to say, I couldnt help but lose interest after a while. Its as if you had a wonderful grasp on the subject matter, but you forgot to include your readers. Perhaps you should think about this from far more than one angle. Or maybe you shouldnt generalise so considerably. Its better if you think about what others may have to say instead of just going for a gut reaction to the subject. Think about adjusting your own believed process and giving others who may read this the benefit of the doubt.
