This was all done a couple of weekends ago. I’m hoping we can maybe use my moms car tomorrow to get the rest of the bricks. I wont lie, we are really winging this project, but its going ok. It’s not perfectly level, or straight, but were doing it ourselves. We are about half way done now. I need to have my dad come over and assess the project. Speaking of my dad, he’s kind of a lawn mowing expert. He came over and mowed/weedeatered my whole lawn, it looked awesome! He looked pretty cool too…lol!
We also edged the front walk and around the little stepping-stones. Makes it all look a lot cleaner. Today I removed two dead bushes from the right bed, and we planted a Columbine (the Colorado state flower) and some wild flower seeds. We also made two herb gardens in some big pots my mom gave us. They are loving the rain in the morning and sunshine in the afternoon. I can’t wait for the gutters to be replaced and the outside of the house to be painted too, hopefully next month.
I love the bricks! I would kill for a score like that and I am envy all the support you get with the work. The yard is coming together beautifully. It’s amazing to see people motivated to work together. Rebuilding something is a great way to build yourself.
P.S. I am impressed with what you have done with yourself too. You’ve got some serious heart.
