let's step outside: phase one
As you may recall from The Before, our yard was in need of some major love and attention. We've started what will be a four phase project to occur over the course of the next several of months. Phase I, which included hardscapes at the front, side, and back of the house, bed prep, and light installation just wrapped up after about 3 weeks of work.
With a few hiccups along the way (a misplaced wall, a last minute change of plans for the driveway), we came out of phase one relatively pleased and ready for more. Here's a look at the before and afters.
The photos aren't great, I know. Maybe now you'll understand why I'm waiting for the professional to do interior pictures :) But hopefully you can get the gist of the transformation phase I has already offered. Here are a few close-ups as well.
Phase II is dependent on the plants being ready and the weather being warm(er). Considering that there's a possible blizzard coming in mid-March, who knows when Phase II will be completed. But I'll be back with photos when it does!
