Update on the Landscape Project – 85% Completed!

As you may be aware, my husband and I are undertaking a large landscape project that I am happy to report is almost finish. The project is about 85% completed and with one more weekend, we expect that we will be done. YEAH!

My husband has been a busy bee on the weekend and has gotten to know the guys quite well at our local stone supply place. He frequents the local stone supply place with his workhorse small truck that has traveled heavy loads of rocks that are probably more than what the truck should withstand. I would like to share some pictures with you on the further progress that has  been made.

Here are some before pictures that show the project in progress:

Update-Current Landscape Project

The landscape is coming along nicely despite the recent rain and an out-of-town trip over Easter weekend…

There has been steady work on the project since the start of the project less than a month ago. The project is about 70% completed. YEAH!

My husband has done an outstanding job and is the brain child of this project. I have some more pictures I would like to share with the gardening community. I hope this project inspires you to consider your landscape project(s) to do.

You will notice some new flower beds that were put in before the start of the landscape project. The flower bed has native hardy plants for this area as this section faces the southwest side of our home. We have planted Salvia, Blackfoot daisies, Lantana and liporie.

Here are some before pictures of a start from a new section of the landscape project:

Current Landscape Project Underway…

It has been a busy couple of weeks for me and my husband. My husband had the inspiration to create a walkway that would be functional and sets the tone for future long-term landscape plans.

The plot started out as a weed infested area in our yard that gets a beating during the summer due to the site facing the Southwest. Needless to say, this produced few options for us to decide what to do with the space. Then… the idea came to my husband to create a walkway that would allow us to have a functional space to get from one side of the yard to the other as there is somewhat of a decline in the walking space area.

Here are some before pictures before the start of the new walkway landscape project:
