Ten years of landscaping progress

“You ought to take photographs of your house from the yard now, while your summer flowers are in bloom,” Margaret said. “Your Realtor will probably be very happy to use them in the listing.” Sounds good. So I did it.

This is the result of a ton of landscaping work. It’s not just planting and mulching, but outright repair. Connecting my home to city sewer and then having 21 trees removed tore my yard up almost beyond recognition.

It made me think about the photos I took of the house when I toured it before placing an offer. I found them in my archive. The yard was kind of a mess, but it got far worse than this before it got better.

What a difference! With considerable help from my family, I’ve done a lot of work in this yard over the last 10 years.

    Such a transformation! It is such a shame that the ash borers took out all those beautiful trees, though.

      Yes, it is, sort of. Frankly, my back yard looks a lot better without them, largely because they were randomly placed. Standing in the back yard, it was aesthetically unpleasing. If I were staying, I’d strategically plant one or two trees back there.
