We worked on the yard yesterday and will put the finishing touches on it today. The photographer is scheduled to arrive at 11 a.m. tomorrow. He has promised a speedy turnaround on the photos, so...barring any more unforeseen problems...the reveal should take place Wednesday. I have my fingers crossed!
In the meantime, I'll share a few before and in-progress shots of the yard.
|Before: During construction|
|Before: All sand and weeds in front of my door|
|In progress: Stepping stones, rock and planters are in place.|
To do: Bird bath and feeder and plants in the flower bed
|Before: The back yard...just a pile of dirt|
|In progress: Where there was once only dirt...grass! Luckily, we've had lots of rain since laying the sod.|
To do: Galvanized tubs for herbs and vegetables, lights, mow!
(Rocks and plants behind trellis/fence are for my back yard.)
|In progress: Last time I showed you, there were only a few baskets hung.|
To do: More pavers to form a seating area, stone, mulch and more plants
It's been a slow go. It's taken us almost as long to get the landscaping done as it took to build the apartment, but it's almost over. Thanks to all of you who have offered me encouragement along the way and have assured me that construction projects really do end eventually.
