Week three was filled with more shopping trips for plants and materials, a lot of dirty/dusty work framing the new front porch, some time posing next to big equipment that doesn’t usually decorate our front yard, and a few new plants successfully placed in the side yard.
The caution tape is down signaling our new driveway is ready for cars and trucks and we can finally pull into the garage (no longer a car port) and close the garage doors. Hooray!
Next week brings more planting, a finished front porch, selecting materials for the fence, a watering system and prepping the house for new paint. Wish us luck!
