Getting Excited about Landscaping
Yesterday was a gorgeous day. In fact, so is today! KD, JK, and I sat on the lawn (the dry part) talking about our ideas for what we want to do with the yard. I have never had a blank-slate of a garden to work with before, and it's a bit intimidating...especially when I think about the cost! We definitely want to build a fence and plant trees this year. We may end up also building a deck and putting in pathways too. Depends on how much time KD has. I won't be much help this year. Our yard slopes away from the house, and the backyard faces north, so it will be a bit tricky. I'm not sure where the best sun will be for everything. After this summer I will have a better idea of what will work where. I'm taking a landscaping course next month, but I'm not sure I will get more than very basic instruction, since it's only one two-hour class. Click on the picture to see my notes better.
