I thought I’d give you a front yard update! To remind you of where we started…
This was our front yard before. Ugly stump (kind of hiding behind the mailbox), almost no grass growing because of heavy shade from the tree above (you can just barely see the branches in this shot). And best of all – when it rains, we have terrible drainage that makes most of our yard a mud pit.
So if you will recall, several months ago, we had the stump ground down, we laid sod, and we planted grass (over where the stump had been ground)!
A month ago I mentioned that we laid a ton of rock (like a literal ton, not like “a lot” haha) in our front yard for drainage. I finally took pictures, so I’m sharing those now!
And this is our yard as of this week! Check out all that greeeen! No more mud pit! The grass still has a little more work to do to finish spreading over the wood chips (it’s hard to see in this picture because our front yard is actually a slight hill), but I think with a little more sunshine and rain, it will be perfecto!
