I'm so ready for all this snow to melt!

Summer/Fall 2008


October 2009


This spring I will finally have some grass growing on my property, hooray! My husband and I purchased our home back in August of 2008 and most of the work we have done has been outside.

The back of my home is all woods and the front yard was all overgrown shrubs so I really wanted my own patch of grass. My husband and I cleared those enormous shrubs/trees and I have been raking out the dirt. Most recently we had large concrete circles professionally poured into the frames we built. Below is what I hope to get my yard looking like this summer. I'm counting the days!

I'm in the exact same boat...fall renovations left me grassless and in a mud quagmire...Your work looks great so far! Love the circles...

I want to do the circles! How much cement did you have to use? How big are the circles? Do you have plans or did you wing it?

So jealous...

Yes there was a drawn out plan with measurements but I think half way in we kind of winged it a bit

It was about 380sq of cement which cost $800.

Some of my circle are huge!
