It's started! The landscaper came over on Monday and drew out where he is going to put in boarders and take out grass! He walked around with a paint can and marked up the lawns. Here is the front section by the door - river rock will be placed between the driveway and the orange lines. (And yes, I had help taking pictures....)
He's going to build up around the trees - about a foot high, separating the lawn into 2 sections.
Here's the amount of lawn that will be left along the street....
The side front will have rock in a crescent shape along the side of the mailbox.
The same type of treatment in the back - bringing in the existing rock, reducing the grass.
This corner will have a fountain/pond -
We got a recycled table from Margene for the patio last weekend too....much prettier than my old round one.
Sunset on Tuesday night on the way to scouts.
My newest project:
It isn't put together yest, I just laid it out to see if it would work - I bought all the parts separately, and wasn't sure they would 'go' together. I'm liking it!!
