During the first summer in my house a few things needed to be addressed, most notably the mountain and canyon in my front yard. In order to ensure the safety of neighborhood youth and protect myself from financial ruin: window wells were installed, the foundation walls were back filled and fifteen 3-ton-loads of spoil dirt, mostly “gumbo” were hauled out. The back yard wasn’t as big of a job. After a couple evenings of chainsaw work and some loads to the dump my overgrown yard was looking much better. To do all of this I received a lot of help from friends in the form of loaned equipment and labor (special thanks to Michael, John, Chad, Bruce, Ken & Jeff.) With that the landscape is finally at what I would consider ground zero.
With winter right around the corner there are still a few things left to button up. Topsoil needs to be spread in the frontyard and lewis’ bathroom spot needs to be finished up in the backyard.
p.s. As i was writing this Lewis decided to pee on my bed, he is very naughty.
