I'm really pleased with how everything turned out. I like the look much better than having all of the the tall bushes and trees that covered half of the house before.
Just to give you a good reference point, here's what the house looked like when we first bought it:
That was in 2010. That look on our faces is half- "We just bought our first house!!" and half- "Whoa, did we really just buy this house?!"
So that was then... and after a whole lot of TLC (all of which started here), this is what it looks like now:
Tally and Hagen made their way into a few shots ;) ...Hagen is our next door neighbor's dog and Tally's BFF.
I used this mulch from Home Depot. It's $2.48/bag, and I used 18 bags total (it always takes way more than I think I will- 10 bags the first trip and 8 more the next). I'm no landscaper, but when the prices per bag are $2.48 or $4.99, the $2.48 ones work just fine. ;)
The dogs were making a mess in the mulch as I was taking pictures and I decided not to care (growth moment for me)
So what's next?! ...Bedroom furniture for the master bedroom and a shower door for the master bath. And then a few other non-essentials for the backyard... but I'm kinda getting the itch to start all over again!
Am I crazy?! Wait. Don't answer that.
YAY FOR FRIDAY!
Have a great weekend, y'all!
