Please Sir, May I Have Some More … Yard Work?

With the left side of the house cleaned up and the deck touched up, it was time to attack the right side yard. This is a much bigger project. It’s going to take a while, methinks, and there’s still the whole back yard to get to …

Gah. Slow and steady might win the race, but it’s freakin’ frustrating when we’re talking yards.

In any case, I headed out to the left side yard and was greeted with this lovely mess:

Right Side

(It’s hard to see on the right side, but that’s one major patch of tall weeds.)

I let loose with a few words, gave thanks that I had spritzed myself with some bug spray (did I mention I found a tick after a previous weeding session? LOVELY.), and commenced yanking. After a while I got into it. Kind of felt like the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man bashing my way through the city, you know?

When the destructo portion was done, I was left with this:

Doesn’t that look better?

Then Hubs got to do his part. He divided one of the Mondo Hostas that was doing its best to take over the Black-Eyed Susan patch, and set it out in portions against the house.

After that, he dug up some lilac runners that were trying to make a break for the road (FREEDOM!) and set those along the right hand space. Someday they’ll provide a nice bit of extra privacy between our house and the neighbors.

We’re getting there!
