Spring Clean Up

This past weekend was spent cleaning up the yard.

We are doing a pretty major overhaul and I can't wait to see how it all turns out.

Here is what has been done so far..

Bright and early start at 8am

Nearly all of the existing plants in the yard were dug up.

Thomas hated these trees..

Timber :)

Roots dug up.. big holes left over..

Much cleaner looking. Once again, Thomas is right.

Rented a rototiller..

It really helped loosen all of the compacted dirt.

This was ugly. We dug up all of the rocks.. 

Ira helped out! The back corner of our yard needed some love and attention..

We planted one of our Lilac plants here. I can't wait to see it bloom for the first time! :)

Rented a power rake to cut up all of the dead grass from the winter.

Both of the bigbigbig trees in the front and back received a trim..

By the time it was all done we filled this entire trailer.

There is still a lot of work to be done, I can't wait to share the progress with you. 

I hope you are enjoying the first little bit of summer! I know we are :)
