*skip* and I have been having a bit of a marathon lately, we have been re-modelling our disaster of a front yard….
Here’s the before picture….
Saturday 2 weeks ago, the dingo digger guy took away all the old “lawn” that never grew properly, and then levelled out what was left.
Then we had to install the brick edge and path, run a new irrigation line along the new lawn edge.
*skip* took yesterday and today off work, yesterday was 1 trailer of bark (not enough, but a start) and 2 trailers of soil. We’re still waiting on some old couch grass that got into the garden bed to die…. stupid weed-killer takes 2 weeks, and then we’ll finish off the bark.
9.30 this morning, with a thunderstorm threatening, the lawn arrived…. and we had it all rolled out and concrete rollered, watered, etc… by lunchtime.
Now I can concentrate on some real scrapping, as my back is just DEAD!
But, I have to admit, it looks FANTASTIC!!
On a lighter note…. all my hard work and labour was totally rewarded yesterday…
It finally happened!!!
Now I know what a Krys acceptance email looks like – wahoo wahoo wahooo!!!!!
I was a bit bored on Wednesday, and I sent her a random submission of my Hills Hoist layout, didn’t even expect ANY answer considering the time of year it is… but it only took her just over a day to say YES! Not only that, she want’s it for the Final Encore gallery – the layouts of exceptional quality/execution/ideas…..
Wahoo wahoo wahoo…. Scrapbooking Memories HERE I COME!
Off to cover and conceal!
