Out with the Old! “The Ugly Bush Saga”

8 Jul

Wish we had done this sooner, seeing how it took a whole 10 minutes to rip the two old, and mostly dead, bushes out (thanks to my husband’s beast of a truck!)

To recap, here’s the house before shot:

And, definitely not finished, but here’s the present shot:

It doesn’t seem like that big of a difference from that photo.  boo.  Here’s a closer up that maybe makes my new, still small plants look… well, visible!

That bare/dead looking grass patch actually has grass seed growing there, so it will hopefully be super-green and lush soon.

I also strategically planted evergreens in front of those meters and a lilac bush (which grow tall) in front of the meter that extends up the wall of our house.  I’m pretty sure we can paint those puppies, so I’ll probably be doing that soon too.  Those uglies need some serious camouflaging!!

Lots of work still to be done, but getting those bushes out had the hub and I giddy the whole weekend… seriously, they were so gross!!

Out with the Old!!

    It’s fun to see what you guys are up to. I also enjoy seeing other people’s house projects since we are working on a lot of similar jobs at our house too! Someday our gardens will be full and rich with flowers… :)
