Yard Work Weekend

This weekend my Mom, Dad and brother Andrew came down for a weekend full of yard work. Our beautifully landscaped yard takes A LOT of maintenance, luckily we had beautiful weather for it. They brought mulch from home and took a whole trailer load of yard debris and moving boxes back for me (saving us $$$ by not paying the city to haul it all away). Some of the highlights were purchasing a lawnmower, raking up tons of bamboo leaves, trying to figure out the wiring to the ponds and lights in the yard, putting up a small-dog-proof fence for Max and mulching. I tried to take a few photos, enjoy!

Front yard after LOTS of pruning, mulching and waterfall work

New chicken wire attached to the bottom of the fence so Max can't escape

After photo of raked up bamboo (it killed all the grass)

Before raking bamboo (4 large garbage bags)

I think I owe them cookies and a few cherry pies after all this free labor! Thanks everyone, it looks so much better!

What a beautiful yard! I can't wait to see it in person. I wish I had just a part of it. Looks like you are doing a great job!
