He spend the winter months rehabbing the interior of our new (old) house.
He started in the Kitchen.
Then, moved to the Foyer.
Finally, to the Built-ins.
Now that it is nice outside, he has decided to take his talents to the outdoors.
He began with our curb appeal.
This was our house in December. It is a large box with some crazy bushes next to the porch. We also have a beautiful amount of bushes that line our sidewalk and the side of the house.
The beautiful bushes all stayed. They crazy ones had to go.
So he removed them and began building.
|Jason making sure things are level.|
|Ron (my husband) and his friend Charlie. They like cutting stuff with loud tools.|
|It is starting to resemble something.|
|Truck-fulls of gravel, sand and patio bricks.|
A rustic wagon soon to be filled with cascading flowers.
The perfect spot to sit for a glass of wine on a warm summer night.
Tall grasses soon to become a barrier for our mini-garden.
A sad looking mini-garden soon to be filled with many edible treats.
In the midst of all of the men, power tools, loud noises and the ocassional beer...we were visited by a neighborhood friend.
Mama bunny thought our front yard during construction was the perfect place to raise her children. We must agree. It is so fun watching her come late at night to check on them. :)
I hope you enjoyed my husband's newest project. And yes, just in case you were wondering, he is available for hire. :) He owns a company called DB Works. They do landscaping, lawn care, snow removal and some home construction projects.
Here is a picture of our front yard once all of the plants matured:
