Psyched for some spring projects coming up, fire pit, fence and major landscaping. Got anything good planned OT?
Getting a small excavator in the next couple weeks to rebuild the outflow of my pond... It was so nice a couple weeks back that I did all my normal May type raking and hedge trimming stuff. Other than that I think I will be mowing and getting the garden prepped within the next month as well.
1) "tie off" lawnmower
2) start lawnmower
3) engage lawnmower drive wheels
4) pop beer, sit in lawn chair
I would love to be put in charge of spiffing up the landscaping at our house. I've offered to do it before. My parents look at me like I have lobsters crawling out of my ears. Meanwhile, in regards to what my parents say they will do with our house's landscaping, the "plans-to-results" ratio is reliably 2-1 with a timespan that grew by an exponent value.
You think you hate it now, but wait 'til you drive it.
I want to tear out that "vine" in the front but the house will look so bare without it... so I have no idea how to address the issue without slapping up a bunch of flower boxes.
I have some big plans for the yard this year. I am going to have it air orated or whatever the poking holes in the yard is to help growth. Planting seeds, peat moss, top soil, planting flowers, cutting some branches off some trees, getting the shrubs perfect, getting the yard as nice as possible as I'm listing the house as for sale this year.
As far as yard work goes, I hate it. Cutting the grass is not bad as it's an easy job that leaves you with big results. I usually prefer to get some degree of drunk as hell or baked as well and have the tunes going the entire time to distract me as much as possible from how much I hate yard work. Out at the cabin it's a little better as it's just raking, bagging, and cutting grass yet at my house it's serious as I want to sell so the pressure is on.
This is about as important for me to have
I like yard work. I hate being indoors when it's nice out. And once I'm done, nothing better than sitting outside with the dogs, reading, and enjoying all your hard work.
I have no idea what I'll do when the baby is born- I love living in the city, but I know having a yard when I was a kid was part of growing up. I want my kid to not have to play on concrete or in the community garden.
just added a small pond to my small yard.
love my yard though... i spend every sunny day with my sliders completely open.
