Our Yard!


For the past month and a half, our (and by "our" I mostly mean Kevin's) big project has been trying to get the front yard in. He built a retaining wall all the way around the front, put in his flagpole, and spent countless hours evening out the yard with the skid steer, bringing in topsoil, and raking it smooth. Some might say he's been a little obsessed with getting it as smooth as possible, but I'm not complaining - it's turning out great! We finally have seed down, so I'll post another picture when we have a nice green lawn. And I have to plant all of our trees, shrubs, and flowers so I'd better get to work.

I love this. I would just love to steal your house from you. You guys have done a lot of work and it has turned out so great. I can't wait to see it with green grass and beautiful flowers.

Can you make the grass grow faster so I can see it now?

Well when we were up there the lawn looked spectacular. It was nice and green and full. I was quite surprised that it was only a few months old. Everything...the house, the lawn, retaining wall etc was amazing and so perfectly done. We were quite impressed. We want to steal your house and yard. Thanks for letting us stay there.
