Pruning the Overgrowth
So, I know the yard is all overgrown and needed major trimming/cleanup but…omg! I finally got it done and I’m in major shock! I believe the yard/trees haven’t been touched in the whole time Jack lived here – approx 15+ years, so there was some MAJOR overgrowth that really needed to be cleared out.
Now I can actually see the fence and the neighbors!
For better or worse, it makes it much clearer what I have going on back there! I am now able to walk in areas never walked before. I have found plants that have been hidden from human eyes for years!
Now its getting my brain churning about all the possibilities for the yard! its like a blank canvas now! First I might want to fix the fence so that it is stucco or something with a wood extension on top to make it cohesive. Then think about making the actual landscaping smarter…stuff along the fence and maybe some planned ‘islands’ with clear pathways.
This will be a good project for spring and that gives me plenty of time to think, plan and save!
