Making Progress

Thank you to my dad, Kim and my sister for coming over today and helping us clean out our front garden.  

{And there is a ton more work to do, but 2 hours today was very helpful and productive.}

Brian and I neglected our yard all summer and we are kinda paying for it now, but jobs, getting married, and painting the horrible colors in our house took priority.  

The goal before winter comes is to clean out the garden beds, take care of the weeds, trim down the bushes and see what comes back in the Spring.  Then, we'll start purchasing new plants, and making our yard look much prettier than it is.

Here are some pictures of what it looked like at the beginning of the day.

Horrible looking plants before we ripped them out

Another angle of the ugly plants

I don't even know what to say -- its a mess!

Cleaned up and chopped down

We ripped the dead plants out = NOT FUN!

Beautiful trimmed can walk under it now!
I feel so productive today!  More to come next spring when we plant new shrubs!
