Two and a half years later, here I am again - plus one man and two dogs. We are glad to finally be moving back to this house.
Since the last post, we laid down landscape fabric on the exposed dirt, topped it with mulch, and place a cement bench on it. Everything else remained the same.
Goals for the year:
Goal #1 - Paint the wooden fence a dark brown.
Goal #2 - Dog proof the backyard. a) lay down cinder blocks all around the perimeter of the yard to prevent digging under the fence. b) replace the two gates on both side of the yard.
Goal #3 - Set up the buddha fountain and patio furniture I bought a few years ago.
Goal #4 - Plants some dwarf fruit trees in some really big pots along the right fence.
Goal #5 - Plant some flowers in wooden planter boxes to flank the sides of the center patio.
Goal #6 - Build a permanent planter along the left fence for my herb garden.
Goal #7 - Tear down the shed in the back left corner.
Goal #8 - Do something with the dirt area along the back fence??
Glad to be back.
