Yard Progress

This is for Melissa, who wanted to see pictures of our yard progress! So here are some before and after (well....not quite done yet) pictures.

We basically tore out ALL the old landscaping and curbing and put in a new sprinkler system. The old stuff was galvanized and it never worked. The grass is still a bit patchy but it's growing back in. We poured some concrete to make our driveway wider and also a pathway to the front door. Hopefully we'll get a new railing worked out soon.

Once we get a few plants and trees in the flower bed it'll be good as new (I hope)!

Chris and I are going to have some cement work done soon. Do you like the work that you had done? Was it expensive? I am still not sure who to hire for the job.

I love the pictures. I wish we had taken some "before" pictures of our yard.

The guy who did our cement was FABULOUS (it's the guy Daniel used as well). It was $3.50/sq foot which is a really good price right now, most people are quoting about $3.80 ish. Talk to Daniel, he'll give you the guy's number. His name is Bruce. :)

Annalisa, I'm so glad I found your blog!! I love blogging. So many times I don't have a lot of time so it's a great way to keep in touch with everyone's life.

No, they don't have a blog! Not yet anyway. Someday she'll give into the pressure...and I'm thinking it'll be soon. :)
