Landscaping Love: Part 1

I feel like I have a lot of posts that begin with “Part”. Perhaps that’s because we have so many projects going on, or so many different things to get done before something is considered complete. In a way, it’s a beautiful thing. It means that we’re making progress and I love progress.

Today’s topic is something that the hubby and I have REALLY wanted to get started. In every way, this is part of a new series.


It makes such a huge difference to a home and it’s something that we have ZERO of. Well, if you consider random rock landscaping then we have boat loads! Seriously.

The whole rock thing is a little annoying to us, because, well, we don’t have enough dirt to start a lawn. Which means we’ve hired someone to bring in 8 truck loads of dirt. It looks so much better around here!!! They’ve spread the dirt, with still more to come, and are getting ready to install sprinklers. We are beyond excited!

In just a few short weeks we could possibly have grass! WHAT??? My happy heart is singing!

Here’s what we’ve got:

Oh the joys of having dirt!

More dirt! You can see all our rocks in the background. That’s everywhere, which is why we’re to excited to see a yard forming!

It’s looking lovely! The rectangle area will be sprinklers and grass. Everything else is to be determined.

Now for the front:

The area on the left is more sprinklers and grass. The right side will be a berm with trees, bushes, flowers and rock. And maybe boulders. We haven’t gotten that far yet.

It may not look like much yet, but it’s a major improvement from what we had!

Here’s to grass!
