When we first bought the house, the left front side yard appeared to be nothing but dirt and some weeds. Then it rained all winter, and the weeds grew thigh-high.
After several weekends of weed-whacking, scraping, digging and weed-eradicating we finally put down some landscaping tarp, some lavender, mint and cute poof bushes.
We still have a good bit of work to do: there are still four feet of (unpictured) weeds from the lavender to the curb, but I haven’t gotten to them yet. The right front yard (next to the Asian Pear) is also still a weedy mess, but we are making progress.
The back yard where the dog run used to be still needs a bit more work as well. We eradicated the waist-high weeds, and put in some wine barrel planters. Some smaller weeds are making a comeback, once those are annihilated, I strongly suspect landscaping tarp will be utilized there as well.
No post would be complete with out mentioning Oliver at least once. I am pleased to announce more photos have been uploaded to Oliver’s 4-month Album, and remember to check out all of Oliver’s YouTube Videos as well!
