We have been pretty creative around our house & landscaping.
MT personally built / installed / worked with:
Tan block edging replacing conventional scalloped red brick edging along front.
5 junipers along front hand-trimmed / reshaped.
Dry creek bed on front left under ash tree, featuring river rock,
2 purple fountain grass plants, mondo grass & purple African daisies.
3 jasmine along side porch (killed by anti-termite tenting) resurrected.
21 flagstone pathway along side porch to back yard.
Most gardens edged w/ medium-small river rock, featuring strategically placed larger rocks.
30' pine tree hand-trimmed by climbing.
Back border of back yard edged w/ single row of railroad ties.
Entirely new garden in back corner next to holly tree, featuring 2 deer grass plants
& rock wall affectionately called "Stonehedge".
23 flagstone patio in front of holly & Stonehedge.
Multi-level rock garden on front right below mailbox lamppost,
featuring river rock, lilies-of-the-Nile & transplanted day lilies.
16 warm LED solar pathway lights installed around gardens
( unfortunately, someone has helped themselves to 5 of them )
& 2 warm LED solar spotlights uplighting ash & pine trees.
Dry waterfall also built for neighbors across street.
Lawn has been recurring struggle, sometimes sumptuous. w/ drought right now: mostly brown.
Tina helped w/ railroad ties, sifting garden dirt to rid of stones,
laying landscaping fabric & mulch, transplanting roses, calla lilies & plants mentioned.
Azaleas, begonias, columbines & most potted plants are her sole domain.
Master bedroom, living & dining rooms painted by us together.
Laundry room wallpaper stripped down to original wood paneling by Tina by herself.
Oct 2012: Dual-paned windows installed & exterior painted "Seal Pup" blue w/ white trim.
Jan 2014: Master bath remodeled.
We are co-chairs of our Home Owners' Ass. Membership Committee
& each a team leader of our community Emergency Response Team.
You could say we've been a little busy.
We love it here.
