A Clean Slate

Hope you all had a great holiday.. we spent most of our time at home relaxing and catching up on some much needed rest and home time. We did go out Thanksgiving morning to watch Coco in the theater.. great movie.. we really liked it.

Last week I shared with you our new patio well while we were having the back ripped out and since we already had all the machinery we thought we get the front of the house too. 



The landscaping we inherited with the house was taking over the entire front yard.. all the bushes blocked our view and maintaining all the overgrown was tiresome.. we also had no direct walkway from the door to the street.. except for going all the way down the driveway.. so we found that we along with delivery people, guests.. all usually just ended up walking through the grass and around all the plants. Not something we loved.. so..


We got it all pulled out to start with a clean slate.

You did a lot of work, and it looks good.

Oh, wow. Your house is beautiful! I see exactly what you mean about the previous landscaping, it was getting a bit overgrown, but what you did with it looks perfect! I love the bed near the front door. Our front yard is also very over-planted, by a previous owner, but I'm afraid to do anything with it because I don't know enough about landscaping. Maybe we should think about hiring some help with it.

SO beautiful! When we bought our home it had A TON of landscaping to maintain and we've cut back on some of it, we just don't have hours to spend tending to it every weekend! So, I totally get that!
