For somebody that grew up dreading yard work I have turned into this little lawn care Queen who loves seeing her own lawn in tip top condition. That meant that I had to learn a lot, since as with most children and teens I didn't pay a whole heck of a lot of attention. I raked the leaves but only under the greatest deres. And anything else was either handled by my older brother or my parents.
Those are the perks of being the baby.
And yet, now I can only stop and appreciate how groomed their yards are. My bother was in great shape going into it when he and his wife purchased their starter home.
It took us a little longer, but we are very pleased with are results. While meager to begin with they have literally bloomed into a much fuller experience.
I blog about my various experience landscaping as well as things that we would have done differently had we done it again.
