R.I.P

As in ripping out the weeds…

Take a look at our backyard a few years back (sorry crappy picture). This was taken the day we closed on the house. It was also one of the 1st things that had to go. I grew up with an apple tree and know how high maintenance they can be.

Once the tree was gone I went around and ripped pretty much everything else out. The pervious owner once had what I can only imagine was once a beautiful garden. By the time we bought the house it was so over grown and just ugly, it all had to go bye bye.

I’ve spent the past two summers ripping out flower beds and planting grass. This is what we had last summer.

Notice the Bush like thing in the back right of these pictures??

It never really bugged me, it helped block the view of the apartment buildings  (YUCK). But by the end of last summer they were so over grown and heavy looking they had to go. Last weekend I let the ripping start, OUT they came!  Now keep in mind its just the beginning of Spring here so nothing has bloomed.

Btw check out the new patio set! and the rest of the yard so far!

I would like to plant some cheap but tall tree/ bushes along the fence but thats down the road…

isn’t photoshop fun 🙂
