A lot of projects have been checked off our "to do" list this winter. Now it is time for the landscaping. Spring is around the corner and we wanted to get a jump start on getting the backyard back into shape. If you remember from an earlier post, this is what our backyard used to look like.
It hasn't been a pretty site after all of the construction was completed. I did manage to save all of the azaleas, liriope, hostas, and sedums to transplant. We removed all the stone blocks and donated them to a local high school. The amazing thing was that the entire landscaping project was completed in ONE DAY! They did an awesome job. We still have a few little things that my husband and I will finish, but all of the hard work is done and the best part is that there is no more grass to cut in the backyard. (Although I will have to replenish the mulch)
