We have a yard!

Stew stopped by the house on his way home from snowboarding this afternoon and the landscapers had been there! Brett and Haley had also swung by on Wednesday so I already knew they were doing work on the stone columns out front, and then within just 24 hours we suddenly had grass, trees and plants! It's still shocking to me how fast they are getting things done.

You can see the completed stone columns here, which I think are such a nice touch.

And here is our mini front yard!
The house is situated at the front of the lot to maximize the back yard space, and that's just fine with us.

Shot of the backyard from the master bedroom window.
Our property goes up just a few feet above the rock wall at the back and that's where the fence will be.
I'm still not quite sure what I'm going to do with that upper area.

The whole backyard!
This is a panoramic shot so it's kind of distorted... the patio isn't really curved like that.

I absolutely love the back yard, but in front all I see is weeding and gardening and other chores that I loathe. So unless Jesse Metcalfe is available to become my personal gardener, I'm pretty sure we'll eventually be tearing all that stuff out and replacing it with grass that goes right up to the porch. After all, I don't want to be that tacky neighbor on the block who has a yucky, overgrown, dead garden out front. 


  1. yay!!! It's looking really good!!! And I'm impressed how green everything is!!!


  2. It looks fantastic! Sounds like he went up to Snoqualmie yesterday? Nick went skiing up there too! He went work some work people and was there from about 3 to close, I think?


Talk to me, Goose!
