Backyard Reveal!

30 May

Happy Memorial Day!!

This is what I woke up to on Friday. Yay!

I couldn’t wait to get home from work, the anticipation was killing me.

So without further ado, here is a our beautiful backyard

Along the fence line we planted screen trees, that will eventually grow higher than the fence to provide more privacy and block out the view of other houses.

Such a huge transformation from when we first moved in.

I was pretty nervous to let the doggies out, but I knew they were dying to explore their new space.

They felt right at home, so cute.

I’m alive!

And yes, we’ve been busy!

Currently our backyard is getting a major overhaul! I seriously can not wait for the final reveal!

On Thursday the husband and I tackled this horrific scene:

Wow this is actually pretty embarrassing, and I can’t believe I’m allowing people to see our neglected backyard. I’ve always been more of an interior girl not so much exterior, as you can see.

I think one of my favorite things to do is throw crap away!

Here’s a nice little after picture, ahhh feels good. But still not done.

Yesterday our amazing landscaper started and it already looks so good without the weeds and some fresh dirt.

BTW, did you notice the posts on the pergola? We finally got them wrapped, so they are much beefier now and have the added detail as oppose to the metal lameness.

Our gorgeous new sprinkler head, our house has never had irrigation so after 5 years of living here I’m pretty damn excited.

Our landscaper was so sweet he even cleaned up the side yard! For FREE! Can’t beat that. Scroll up to see the before picture it was disgustingly bad. Ryan and I are planning to add some bark back here too.

Anyway, that’s the latest on our backyard progress. I really hope to see the sod in by today or tomorrow, so look out for another post to come soon.
