The yard space

Category: Daily notes | Posted: Wed Apr 25, 2012 3:32 pm

Here are a few pics to show you what we have for yard space. As you can see there is so much potential. I've got so much in my head of what to do with each little part.

This is the house from the road. It's a small subdivision and our house is just before you go around the circle.


Looking down the driveway to the left. See the brown dead grassy looking area, it's wet land and we can not distrub it, so I have to keep that in mind when I start planning.


Looking down the driveway to the right. Behind the big tree trunk you see is more wet land. You can see this better from pic #1. In front of the tree trunk, I want a row of lilics lining the driveway all the way back to the well pipe.


Walking toward the left around toward the back of the house.


and still walking.


This whole mess is going to be a lot of work. We've been trying to get rid of the wood (dead trees we had cut down the last couple years). We did have a couple bon fires, but we just don't have the time to burn it all. It's going to cost too much to have someone else remove and dispose of. We're thinking of chipping it and putting it back into the play area. You can see the white square behind the tree? That is a play set (slide/swings/etc.) that will be in this area once it's cleared.


Looking from the play area to the back. I'd like a patio of some sort one day with an arbor and some sort of water feature.


If you come around the right side of the house toward the back this is what you see. Behind the bulkhead is the generator and the round dark thing is the gas lines (we burried the tank).


These are flowers currently popping up in various areas of the lawn.


There are a few sections of this in the lawn in the back.


Flowers that are in the wet land areas.


A dandelion with a baby grasshopper...just thought this was cool!

What a nice blank slate to fill! Lots of potential there.

I agree ... the possibilities are endless! I can't wait to see what you do Terry :)
