Garden and Backyard Progress!

Let’s go back in to the archives to see what our backyard looked like when we bought our house in September…

Overgrown and scary!

We immediately went to work removing/killing the English Ivy that had taken over and began to think about how many trees needed to come down.

This picture is after having some trees removed and clearing a lot of the brush/bushes.

This is the stump of the GIANT Locust from the middle of the yard – it was rotten on the inside! Scary.

After we had cleared as much as we could for the time being, Z tilled a patch of dirt and put up a fence for our new garden!

I’m not sure who loves our backyard more…Z or the dog!
