Behold, le jungle.

Yes, this is the best way to describe our back garden……..

Until recently that is. This is a ‘before’ picture. We decided our sad garden needed some attention. Ok, that’s a lie, we knew this for a while so I guess you could say we decided it was bad enough we couldn’t ignore it. We made a plan for a super quick cleanup/update and headed to Home Depot. While standing in the garden center, we promptly tossed that plan and winged it, going with our inspiration. A few hours later, the Home Depot truck had been rented, used, and returned. By the end of the day, we were midway with this amount of progress:

Wow, what a difference! By then end of the weekend, we were done and left with this:

Quite the improvement! Of course I couldn’t walk normal for a few days, but it was worth it!  Believe it or not, that’s about $400 right there. Goes fast, doesn’t it? Of course we have a few leftover supplies (landscape fabric, stones, a bag or two of paving sand, etc) for future projects. I declare the effort a success and several weeks later I’m proud today, it still looks like that 🙂
