Yard Pictures

The house we bought was vacant for a year while it was being fixed up before the investor was foreclosed on so the weeds have taken over the lawn. We talked to a neighbor who was very nice and gave us 2 boxes of flood lights and a large sprinkler. He is so happy to see us trying to get the yard back. He said it used to be so well tamed and beautiful and we want it that way again. Robert's mom brought her tools and lawn mower over so we could get started.

Robert's mom Arlene helped us cut down some of the enormous bush. As beautiful as this bush is and so private, it is going to be a hard one to tame.

Robert took these other pictures on another day when the storm came.

It really is a cool house and I'm sure by next year, that yard will look fabulous!
