Front Yard

Over the last couple of months we’ve been working on our landscaping/ exterior. First we cleared out the weed-ridden garden beds and planted some new flowers, including a plumeria cutting from our neighbor.

Then we pained the front door and finished the trim around the garage and added some light fixtures.

Next we got to work building a retaining wall.

The weeds came back so we weeded again and put down mulch.

And brought in dirt to level the front bed.

We also pulled out the waist-high weeds along the side of the house and put down mulch.

(Our tomato plant, which was barely alive, is now taking over the whole garden.)

Then we planted more things and did some design work with rocks and pavers that were already in our backyard.

Look, a guava tree! Just one more reason I love living in CA.
