Friday Picture: Yard Project

Well, more precisely, we shots represent parts 1 and part 2 of what we hope is a three step process.

The first step was removing a bunch of Juniper bushes from the area below.  There were two types — one that grew a little higher and one that grew a little closer to the ground — and we whacked them all.

You can see the results of step 1 below.

As you can see above, when we whacked a bunch of Junipers, it left a bunch of Juniper stumps.  Sweet Wife and I spent the better part of a day digger up the stumps.  This was not a fun day.

Step 1 also involved using the excavator and removing about 30 Dwarf Yaupon shrubs, but this happened a day after this picture was taken. You can see some of these shrubs in the picture above.

Step 2 simply involved spreading pine straw over the area.

We would have preferred to re-plan the area, but weather is still too hot right now, so we spread the pine straw to make the homeowner’s association happy.

Step 3 will hopefully come soon.  This will involve replanting the area with some shrubs and flowers.
