Yard Make Over {Part One}

We have been enjoying fantastic weather here in Seattle...28 straight days of sun! Fantastic! With all this great weather, Stein and I have really been working hard on our outdoor space. When we moved in, in October, this is what we started with...


There was a rickety picket fence around one side of the house...


and a pre-fab tall fence on the front side of the house...


We live on a bit of a busy street and to maximize the sale price, the seller tried to re-route the entrance of the house to the side of the house vs. the front. It really doesn't make any sense, so we quickly went to work, removed the old fence and built a nice new (consistently styled) fence all the way around the property.


We moved the gate to the front of the house and got to work putting in a new front walk...


We pulled up the red pavers from the previous path and as a budget saver plan on reusing the bricks for a new patio.


Then we got to work with a sod cutter, clearing out beds along the fence and leveling an area for the patio...


We've made so much more progress since then, it is amazing to look at these original photos. Stay tuned for tomorrow's post to see where we are now!
