Yard Makeover

We have spent the past year totally overhauling our yard. You can't tell from the pictures (only sort of) how BAD the yard was when we moved in. It was just awful. A hilly, weedy, thorny, mess.

Here's the before....

And here's the after. We finished the retaining wall, leveled the entire yard, put in new sod, planted trees, bushes, ground cover, etc, added a growbox, put in gravel and pavers on the side of the house where the garbage cans are, put in edging and mulch all around the flowerbeds. It's so nice to have a yard that we can actually enjoy.

I guess I should have taken the after pictures when the shade wasn't covering most of the yard. But you get an idea. It really looks 500 times better.
