Yardwork - Round 2

So this is round 2 from my Tuesday post.

I just cannot believe how much different (even though it's still a mess) my yard looks...I mean duh, get the crap out and it's going to open it up but wow...I have a big yard!!

That big stupid square mass of rock and brick...GONE! Next I need to dig up those bushes and maybe replant them.

Look you can see my house!

This was full of overgrown crap...LOL All lined with stones...GONE!

There was SO much stuff along the side of my house too! There was part of a chain link fence right by my front door that was taken over by a honeysuckle bush. Yea pretty but a bee haven! Doesn't make it fun trying to get in the house!! GONE!
Here is all the stuff we've taken out! Can't wait to haul it off!!
Here is all the stone that has been taken out so far. That stupid square place from above had layers of stone, brick and sand. I wish I knew what's it's original purpose was LOL

It really was landscaped nicely...but again I don't have the time or patience to keep up with it! I want a yard!! Plain and simple!!! Give me grass and I'm a happy camper!
Here is a cool post I did awhile back. It will give you an idea of how it originally looked!

Wow...that's a lot of work. Wish I was there to help, NOT! LOL!

Have a great weekend!

Congrats on all the work. You are a working machine! I tend to....well, slack. On evenings and weekends. I barely get enough clothes cleaned for everyone in the house some days. But then again....they go through a LOT of clothes. :) Happy Monday!

Woah, that was a lot of stuff that you hauled out of the yard. See, I'm like you, keep it simple. Greg and I need to seriously clean up the backyard. It's a mess. Thanks for the inspiration!

Hey Trish...just stopping by to see how you're doing. I'm sure Kyler is in football & Miranda's cheering so you're probably as swamped as I am.

Just hoping you posted some pics...hint hint.LOL! Miss ya!

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving!

AND...Jullien has a 5 page spread in the new Details magazine, the one with John Mayer on the cover. It's for Lord & Taylor "Street Smarts" WOO HOO!

Hope your kids & you are all doing good.

Woah !! Look at all that stuff you did away with. I don't have a green thumb, so a yard is just fine and dandy for me too! :)
