Wordless{ish} Wednesday :: Our New Landscaping

Our house is about five years old.  At the time of the build, we were going to save a little money and landscape ourselves.  Needless to say, life happened and landscaping didn't.  We had some rocks that my dad had gotten for us and helped set in the future planting area and that's about it.  Don't get me wrong, we had lots of pretty flowers as Claire calls them - weeds ;)

We decided to use part of our tax return as an investment in our house and met with Twin Lakes Nursery.  Everything moved quickly from there.  In a weeks time we had a design in hand and plants delivered and placed.  Then the hard work began, the planting.  Thankfully Ryan is very willing to work hard. We are also thankful for our friend Marcus who helped!  Together, they had all the plants in the ground late Saturday afternoon.  A few more hours over the next few days to spread the mulch and I can say that it is 95% complete.  There is a little more mulch to spread throughout and tags to take off trees.  Enjoy our progress photos :)

Yes we still have a wreath up - we need a taller ladder!

At least the weeds were gone for these photo...

  6. Wow, your landscaping was done quickly! Considering it was just starting out when you made this post, and it looked great! I’m excited to see what it looks like now. I’m sure it’s a lot greener around the stone path now. Any pictures to show us of how it looks these days?

  7. Indeed, Jeremy. The landscaping was completed fast. I would like it, though, if it’ll have more flowers to make it livelier and colorful. It’ll be great to see roses, carnation and tulips beautifying your green meadow.


Thanks for visiting! I hope you enjoyed reading this as much as I enjoyed writing it.
