We bought the home we are in and it was all set up- Ready for us.
Looking around there were a few things obvious to us that needed attention.
We first attacked the front entrance . Bricks and debris needed to be moved away, the area we wanted to walk on needed prep work and leveling. We had purchased some 18×18 inch stone that will fit the bill –For the time being.
Then, after moving in, to the rear of the house.
Firsts thing there was to put the plumbing in order. It needed to go below grade.
Now to bury the pipe and smooth the landscape. At this point we had no plan to add the gardens or patio.
Yes, Remind me to do a post about the patio.
My daughter has an old friend who is also a friend of ours. Her husband was glad to share the use of his tractor to allow me get things done with a whole lot less effort. He just dropped it off and told me to call him when I was done so he could come back to pick it up again.
Such a blessing !
