New fence!

I've really missed this group - I feel like I haven't been here in forever!


The last time I did pop in, I was in the midst of making some fence decisions. DH and I bought our house in October, and we knew that we needed a fence since we have a dog that refuses to do her business during walks. Actaully, she's fully blind, so she is kind of scared of walks in general.


Anyhow, we finally had it installed last month! Here are a few pictures:

Next up is landscaping. Our backyard is seriously water-logged - I've never seen anything like it. (I'll probably write a second post asking for help with that.) Last week we bought five Green Giant Arborvitaes since they are supposed to help with drainage, and today we're planting a few hydrangeas as well. We're on over half an acre of land, so I'd really like to have both a flower garden and a vegetable bed - I might be asking for suggestions there, too!


If you couldn't tell from the picture of the front of the house, there was a tree growing alongside the lefthand corner that we had removed. It left this nasty brown gunk on the siding that I am desperate to powerwash off. Now that the weather is getting warmer, we've started powerwashing everything :) This is the start of our front step - it took over an hour!

You can't tell in the top photos, but the driveway is wide and long (it fits over six cars easily). I don't want to even think about how long that is going to take to wash *sigh*


I can't wait to get everything clean, but I also can't wait to replace all of the front landscaping... and also to paint the front door and shutters a pretty navy blue... and to do 1000 other things! The projects never end!
