Project Curb Appeal – 2013 Edition

I teased back here that we had done some major landscaping to our front yard. Indeed, Project Curb Appeal is rocking out this summer.

We started with this.

One intense afternoon [oh and some new shutters!] we had this.

And a little planting we had this:

For the entire past year, I was dying to rip out the rest of the bushes. They were so ugly, so unshapely. Bleh. Gross.

But I knew it was no small task. Just two of the bushes took Andy and our friend Powerhouse Lane nearly a half a day to take out. And we had much more for the rest of the yard.

Long story, but we connived a way to get our whole small group out to help us. And help they did.

Guys, Jenny had a baby like basically the day before this. And not only did she come and help, she brought donuts. Mom/friend/person of the year right there.

New front, with daffodil and tulips messing up the view.

I still have work to do. We need to add some hostas and cover up the drain pipe. But we’ve come a long way.

I was finally able to remove the tulips and daffodils. Here is as picture from this week. Oh! Can you spy what else is new?
