It is Finished!

laurmelaMay 16, 2010

In March I posted about figuring out what to do in our side yard. See the link below. Well we finally finished today!

Here are a few before shots.

As you can see it was pretty bad. Really I wondered if we would really finish. We kept on doubting ourselves.

Here it is our new side yard.

I really love how it turned out! We did the raised beds a few weeks ago and the paver patio yesterday! Added the rocks today. I still can't believe it is finished. I still have some planting to do. But that is the fun part.

Toodles,

Laura

You worked hard. I am glad you are pleased with it. Is the windmill for decoration? Or does it have a purpose?

It is just a decoration, although my neighbor says he just needs to look outside at it to see if it is windy!

Awesome... job so far!!

For your consideration, move the eagle sculpture over a foot or two to the right to line up with the central line of symetry running down the path, plant another open shrubby thing to the left in it's place. This will give balance and unity.
