Landscaping {Sunday Snapshot}

We have lived in our house for 5 years now, and we still have landscaping to do.  We planted most of the trees and did the work around the edges of the house, but we still haven't finished the perimeter of the yard.  Since A is graduating in about 6 weeks, it seemed like a good time to get the job finished in time for her graduation party.

Here are a couple "before" picture as the boys were starting to lay landscape fabric on Friday.

Saturday was super windy, so very little was accomplished.  Here's what things are starting to look like on Sunday morning:

The rock is very heavy, so J gets a load with a tractor, and B has to spread it out with his feet.

Here is their little helper in her night gown, rain boots, gardening gloves and furry leopard print jacket (isn't that what everyone wears to landscape?).  She likes the cardboard rolls from the ends of the landscape fabric.  She plays swords with them and chases the chickens.

Occasionally, she takes a swing at her brother for fun.  He does not seem amused.

She thinks its hilarious, though! ;)
It's a lot of work to get everything done and we still need to plant the shrubs and flowers, but it's going to look soooooo nice when it's finished!

  1. Oh my good heavens. I LOVE the helper in her leopard coat and boots. What a cutie : ). I would hire her for landscape work in a heartbeat!
