Remember the before picture?
On August 15 we hydroseeded, and about a month later (today), we have a lawn! You may also notice the lovely edging R put in for my flower beds. More on those later...
Fresh pictures from this morning. I swear I didn't alter these- the lawn really is this color! We could film some crazy green-screen stunts here. The shutters are new, and we're planning to paint the front door to match sometime this Fall.
I've got one flower bed (mostly) planted with clipping from my Grandma. I have a couple of bulbs I want to add this fall, and I'll probably rearrange the stepping stones. Right now they're just a little too far apart. The back bed will also get planted soon. I've got some hydrangeas on order. I'm already excited for next Spring!
Here's what happening behind the house. R made me some bird food hangers for the deck and we've had many little visitors. We're also working on adding rocks under the deck stairs. We've been collecting these from the yard all summer, and it looks like we'll be doing it for the rest of our lives. Ha!
In the spirit of keeping it real, here's what the rest of the yard looks like. Unfortunately, it's not all lush neon grass. We'll tackle this some other time. Maybe next year. Maybe. In the meantime I'm keeping busy by pinterest-ing all kinds of cute under-deck patio areas. We've got many years of seeding, weeding, planting, and paver-placing ahead of us! Woohoo!
