A New Fence!



This is our fourth summer in this house and I finally feel like we’re making some real headway! I just had to share this progress pic!

Last year Jason (aka husband extraordinaire) took down that big sun-blocking tree, and now everything is flourishing because there is sunshine in our backyard again! So far this year we’ve finished extending the patio and now have a new fence! A huge difference, don’t you think?!

Jason is finishing up building the garden box in that top corner so we can plant veggies this year, and we’re working our way SLOWLY out of that corner to tackle the rest of our landscaping plans. It’s amazing how a simple thing like a fence can make me fall in love with our yard!

Are you tackling any landscaping projects this year? Is your list of things to replace as long as ours?!

The Perfect Trench & A Meet Up!



This is how the backyard looked at the end of last weekend. We’ve had drainage problems since we moved in, thanks to the clay-based soil, but we met with a landscaper last year who explained how to fix the problem. Just look at this perfect trench my man dug! 12″ wide, 16″ deep all the way. The graphic designer in me loves that he’s made a perfect y shape. And that’s only one section – he’s dug around the entire perimeter of the yard! Go Jason!

So, while Jason and the boys are hard at work cleaning up that mess, I’ll be working hard at others things… such as eating, chatting, and shopping! Tomorrow is the first time I’ll be meeting up with the Canadian Westcoast Design & Lifestyle Bloggers!! I’m so excited to meet everyone! I’m sure I’ll have some pictures to share!

Have a great weekend!!
