New Home Reveal - Project 2



As I promised, here are our backyard transformation pictures. I wish we would have taken some before pictures of what the backyard really looked like. When we arrived, we had a 4ft thistle welcoming us home. It looked like it had been growing for 3 years!! We had a picture of this, but I can't find it! So... the gloves when on, the shovel came out, and I got to work!

I have been busy pulling out all the grass that had grown through the edge of the rocks, planted more perennials, and stained the deck. I also stained the deck this past weekend to freshen it up. It feels like a whole new backyard!



After we stained the deck. Painting around those spindles was not fun!


We love the covered deck...


Our backyard neighbor - South Dakota cornfield!



More pictures of our newly stained deck. We used the color Natural Cedar. It looks 100% better.




We also are putting in a privacy fence for our puppy - excited to see they got started yesterday!


I will post more pictures when they are done. Tomorrow will feature my kitchen! Have a good day!
