I didn’t walk through our backyard for the first year we owned the house. Seriously. Sometimes I tiptoed down the back steps but I didn’t really creep past that spot. It was just so overgrown and unknown out there in the jungle. Imagine Lord of the Flies…. now you get it. (yes the image below really was our backyard)
Apparently it took four men two entire work days to tear out our mess of a backyard and plant sod, but at the end of the first day, Matt dropped me a text with this here photo on the right. I was
floored thrilled ecstatic. And then I went in our backyard for the first time.
Now Matt has adopted our backyard as his child. He has a flourishing garden, an automated sprinkler system for the lawn AND the garden, and we obtained two fruit trees which might produce fruit sometime before we move out of the house. My goal is just to get some string lights, a fan, a table and my custom cornhole game finished. This is almost perfectly representative of our personalities.
More to come when we finish!
