Landscape Makeover

This is the before of our house when the trees were sort of nice and the azaela's wer large and partial bloom.  The trees did not fair well after the ice storm a few years ago and the one on the right was taken out.  We finally had to make the decision to take the other out too as it started dying.  The whole front yard was very old landscape materials and had to be replaced...

With a landscape architect we made a lot of changes to the front...trees down, shrubs out...here we go...



Ta Da!!!!


By the way, today I'm 54 years old and wear it proudly!

I love the fresh look to your house! It looks great. Congratulations on your 54th! Next month I'll be hitting 59...that's a bit too close to six-zero for me, but I guess I'll take it anyway. Have a great day today.

Happy Birthday! I love make-overs and this is great! It will look even more beautiful as the bushes grow.
