Yard Work

This weekend we decided to tackle the front yard! I don't think we knew what we were getting ourselves into! I wanted to just plant some flowers in the flower beds and around our tree, well it ended up being so much more than that! :)

That is what our yard looked like before we really got started. Plain and boring with no color except green. We have a ton of landscaping since we had a model home, great when we wanna sell the house someday but not easy to keep it looking good all the time! Dax has mowed our lawn a lot and kept the grass looking nice but neither of us have planted flowers or trimmed hedges. We tried our best and I think it looks really good. We trimmed the tree with stones and we are going to go and get more to trim the front flower beds with them too.

Rilan loved getting to be outside all weekend, he would ride his bike for a while and then come over and help us rake or plant flowers. He even helped Dax trim the hedges! I was a little nervous but he did a great job!

I think we made 3 trips to Home Depot to get stuff. We went and got our initial set of flowers, potting soil, and stones. We ran out of stones so had to go and get more, then we needed more potting soil and something else so Dax had to go back yet again!

I love how the tree turned out, I can't wait to see what the rest of the yard looks like once we get the other stones put in.

I had to add these photos of Dax, he though he was hott stuff! I bet he is happy that the neighbors had a electric hedge trimmer we finished the job with! Haha! Love you babe!
