Considering we re-did our front yard a full year ago, guess it’s time I showed some pictures of it, huh? When we moved into this house, the front yard was basically an overgrown forest – tons and tons of trees.
It made me feel like I was living in the dark so we decided to cut down those trees! It was a tough and scary decision but definitely the right one. We took down about 13 trees total – it was a big job! And my crew was loving all the action!
Maxwell’s baby face here…I cannot believe that was only 1 year ago. Also, Samantha’s face! ha!
It was a mess for several days – and I think made all of our neighbors really nervous about what in the world we were up to!
It was awesome when the trees were down all the light started pouring into our windows and we could actually see the sunset from our bedroom!
Once the trees were cleared, the landscaping came and we had lots of good supervisors!
Then we got sod! woohoo!
We were so pleased when it was all said and done – and I think our neighbors were pleased too!
About two months later we also cleaned up the side of the yard to finish the project…
It was a huge undertaking but I’m so glad we did it. Taking out all those trees just opened the house up and the kids love to run and play in the grass in the front. A year later and still looking good…
