Yard Work

Our yard was in terrible shape. The dogs had destroyed it, and we didn’t do much to make it any better. When Eric and Jess decided they were going to get married, and that our backyard would be the perfect place, we said of course…..and then panic set in. They clearly hadn’t seen our backyard in a while! So the work began. When we moved in, there was a dirt mound in the backyard that grass had begun to grow over, so that had to be leveled and then there were weeds galore and trampled flowerbeds. Keith came over one weekend and he and Ryan rototilled the mound. That left a huge dirt pit in the backyard, and we knew as soon as it rained that would equal a mud pit for the dogs to play in. We had to put up a lovely orange construction fence to keep the dogs out of the dirt while we planted seeds and gave the grass time to grow. The following pictures are some before and after shots of the transformation. Of course…Ryan finished up the yard at 7:30am the day of the wedding….nothing like procrastination.
