Another weekend of yard work...
the pit (she will be a theme to our projects) was eating/digging in all the potted veggies the GF planted around the yard so we decided we needed to fence the garden. Proved to be useful already as when we spread more of our decomposing grass clippings on the damn dog was obsessed and trying to eat it..
Other problem area was this little planted section near the back door, it is shaded most of the day so stays cool, she digs a hole in it, flinging the dirt all over the sidewalk which tracks dirt into the house. So GF used some of the spare bricks we have along with random rocks from the yard and made a rock garden. Planted mint, which I guess repels bugs from near the door? and some flowers.
Since we were on yard clean up mode decided that instead of a giant pile of bricks waiting for us to redo a path from the front gate to the patio that doesn't exist yet we might as well make it so the trash/recycling can area was nicer looking and now I don't have to move everything to mow around them. came out nicer than we expected and took like 20 minutes.
Then just lots of general yard clean up, moved all our misc scrap wood from projects either onto the burn pile we had going all weekend or organized for some misc projects like a second dog house, broke up all the random concrete we have found around the yard and dropped it into the abandoned cistern which will get collapsed/back filled eventually and gathered all the random rocks around the yard. got all the scrap metal ready for cutting down to fit in the borrowed truck to bring to scrap this week too. Found this sweet knife/saw thing and this is also a collection of bottles we found in the past 2 weeks. Since we have moved in found about double that and also probably about 20x that in broken glass
Once last section of misc scrap wood, metal, some pvc we should have returned etc to clean up and our yard will no longer look like a construction site!
