Our yard

Now I know that its not as green as it once was, but HELLO we live in a desert... So its the theme we were going for you know? no? okay so it died! we are working to make it green again, Im sure come November it will be plush and beautiful once again... (and ready for snow)

So here it is what we have been doing for the past 3 weeks, I dont have any before shots, but first up is what the section that we havent done looks like, and thats what they all looked like... got it? good here we go...

Our front door is to the left of this shot
Our front door is to the right of this one
This is around the corner from the above

Hard to believe that this is even the same yard! look at that grass! these are our new chairs, happy anniversary!
this use to be filled with nasty rose bushes, sand, nuggets and weeds, its in the back yard

this is to the left of the previous shot, it also was filled with ugly nuggets, and weeds

this last one doesnt really go with the "theme" of things its more functional then fashionable. You see Sam our half pig half lhasa mix, likes to dig in this corner. so instead of working super hard to put pretty red wood chips down, only to have them dug up we opted for these river rocks that are too big for Coal to eat.

We are going to finish the front this weekend, so I will put up those final shots next week.

It's looking great! Are you feeling the achy back of a homeowner? ;)

I like it so far! Hard work but satisfying too (my take on yard work).
