The hubs and I moved into our new construction home in February of 2010. Like most new construction homeowners, we spent the first two years working on our yard. It was nothing but rocks and clay dirt. After two years and thanks to a local landscaper, we finally had our first successful seeding and aeration. With special help from Scott’s lawn service, we were able to keep the crabgrass and weeds at bay.
So….on to the front landscaping!!!! We really debated bringing in some landscapers to do the front beds for us but…we wanted to start this project ourselves.
Here’s my tip for Tuesday: If you think you can do it yourself…try!!!!!
My husband and I decided to add a little color to our beds; have some fresh mulch delivered; and to make it an annual project to pick 2-3 new bushes/flowers to add to our landscaping.
My children LOVE to look at the flowers as we come up the walk.
“Mom…they are so pretty!”
It’s such a great feeling to look at something that you planted or to see the beauty in hard work and being dedicated to a task.
It’s not a finished product….that will take a few years…. but we are proud of what we’ve started.
We are proud to show our kids that we can roll up our sleeves and do somethings ourselves.
What project are you going to start????
