October 2012 we had a new backyard put in.
Feb 2015 I had a guy come in and clean out the overgrown weeds and now look at it.
I guess a yard requires maintenance! Just like anything else in life, if you let it go, it isn't going to get better, things will start to decay and revert back to their natural state, especially when you live next to an open field where this is what nature looks like.
I think I might need to hire year round landscapers to help me deal with the yard. I have these grand illusions that I can do it all by myself and then the yard looks like this again.
Stay tuned for the 'after' pictures this afternoon. I always enjoy watching other people do work. At least it isn't too hot yet. It's supposed to be over 100 early next week.
