Here is how project 'remove more grass' began. Last summer I found this fountain and metal arbor during some 'Crazy Days' shopping. You know how one thing leads to another...I told my husband I was doing it for him so he doesn't have to mow around all the bushes. Not sure he bought it, but he did admit it was nice when he mowed after I had finished.
I found a concrete bench and added a few plants. I added some other 'yard art' pieces I collected during some after 'Crazy Days' shopping. I love a bargain! I need to find a few more plants to fill in a little but its a good start. I kind of ran out of gas and need to recharge a little bit!
I decided to put plants in the fountain as I have some small neighbor kids that LOVE water...but then, what kid doesn't love to play in the water?
Here is where another 20 bags of mulch went. We redid our deck last fall and again...one thing leads to another. The edge of the flower bed no longer ended the same place as the deck. Plus, all of the other flower beds in the back yard are mulched and this section had river rock. My neighbor and I loaded rock into wheel barrows and my husband schlepped it across the street to her house for a project. Then I got to put in new edging and mulch. Seems it would have been an easier project than the last one but there was A LOT of rock to move! I've been ending most of my days with a soak in the hot tub so I could move again the next day!
Until next time, keep smiling!
