Our green space

The landscapers have positioned all of our plants and trees in the yards today. It looks so beautiful! They already put some of them in the ground but still have a lot left to do. Here is what we/the landscapers have left to do...
  • finish planting the rest of the plants and trees in the yards
  • pull drip irrigation hoses to all of the plantings and put the correct, e.g. 1, 2 or 5 gph, drippers on the ends of the hose
  • install the colored concrete curbing around the grass areas in the back yard
  • deliver and install ~17 tons! of 3/4" screened granite rocks
  • deliver and install 750 sq. ft. of Bob Sod for the back yard. The existing grass is Bob Sod and we LOVE it. It is weed free, has no seed heads, is so lush and green and feels so good in between your toes ;)
  • install the natural gas line for the BBQ

We are so happy with how our yards are turning out. We'll try to take lots of pictures of the finished product. It would also be cool to take pictures of it in a year or two from now, to see how the plants and trees grow and fill out. Most, if not all, of our plants have flowers and some of them even bloom in the winter and summer. How cool is that? Ah! Gardening is so fun!

How exciting! Your home and yard are certainly gorgeous. Can't wait to see Jared running through the grass and swimming in his pool.

Hey Maria! I didn't even know you had a blog. I'm glad you commented on mine so I could see yours. I check out your carlsonzone website often though. I can't believe how big Jared is! We're hoping to get Brigham into preschool for September and that is sad for me!! :( Why do they have to grow up dang it?!?!
