These are pics of our yard a year ago this month (we had just bought the house) and after pictures taken in August. We did all of the work except for the interlocking brick path and patio which we hired out. We have a lot more plans for this summer

Looks good but I don't like the plastic dividers. Suggest using rock or some other stone/rock to dived the grass from the bed or beauty bark.

I really like what you have done. Your yard has a neat, organized, overall appearance. Now you and those wonderful Irish setters have a backyard to enjoy. I'll bet your friends and neighbors are envious. The borders add to the neatness and contribute to lower maintenace. Thumbs up!

Botann the setters belong to my neighbour. There is a chain link fence between our yards, thats hard to see. This year we are planning on putting a row of swedish aspens all along the fence to give us a bit more privacy.

Thanks for the nice comments everyone. I am eager to get our there this summer and rip out more lawn :)

absolutely gorgeous! What is the furry thing in your birdbath?

RE: Check out our before and after pictures

LOL Birdbite, at first I thought it was a huge robin, but then realized it is head of the dog next door. He is actually in his own yard, but the way the pic was shot it looks like he is sitting in the birdbath

What a difference! One item of note... Those ninebarks will need a bit more space. You may need to extend the bed out another 4 to 5 feet to allow them to fill in. They will be easier to relocate sooner than later. Great color choice for that location!

I can imagine how envious the previous owners would be to see how lovely your yard turned out. Ginger57, we'd love to see more images if possible!
