More yard work

14 09 2009

In preparation for our upcoming housewarming party I was outside once again doing too much yardwork.  We bought a hedge saw so I cut the bushes down – all 22 of them.  Daws counted!  I layed down more mulch in two of the areas that were overgrown with weeds.  Mulch doesn’t kill weeds people – not in the least-doesn’t help one bit-even though right on the bag it claims it does – liars!  I bought 3 more bags of mulch – had one left over and Steve had to go by two more.  This time I layed it out much thicker – hoping it would work better.

We planted a couple small rose bushes and will probably add a third in front of the lamp.  The daffodils come up every year in the front so I’m not changing much there.

I cut the crap out of the bushes as you can see.  I had to- to make them look similar I had to cut the middle ones small then the one on the right looked dumb being so big next to the other bushes.  I bought a new planter and planted some mums – they are beautiful.

The back bushes won’t look the small thanks to area not being level.  But they look much better so I’m happy with that.

Side bushes but what I want you to see it the nice CLEAN from millions of leaves drive way.  We bought a new blower and it’s GREAT!
