What A Difference A Day Makes

Posted on: June 1, 2007

Okay…let me rephrase that. What a difference two days, 25 rolls of sod, 20 bags of topsoil, 46 retaining wall stones, 38 pavers, umteen gallons of water and a veritable cornucopia of yard toolage makes.

Gone are the bald spots in the lawn, exposed tree roots, invading weeds and blurred transition between driveway and lawn. Now there is only a field of lush green grass, a walled garden in the shadow of our beautiful, mature Norway Maple that awaits many a shade-loving plant, and a driveway edged by a line of “expertly” laid brick pavers.

So….what do ya think…have we met our curb appeal goal?

Before: Aren’t tree roots supposed to be under the ground?

Before: Where does the lawn end and the driveway begin? Better yet…where’s the grass?

After: We will start planting under the tree once we figure out what we want there.

After: Lookin’ pretty good from the street…almost done.

Next up: Planting, repairing and resealing the driveway and….uh…so embarrassing….taking down the Christmas lights!
