Extreme Backyard Makeover: Take 1

So we are finally getting around to the areas of our backyard that have been neglected for the past two years since we moved in. Here is our progress for the past week so far... First we tore out alot of weeds, crabgrass, and bulbs. Next we covered the ground with a mesh to avoid any unwanted regrowth. And finally we added 20 bags of rubber chips. It is actually recycled tires that have been dyed brown so that it looks like mulch. The beauty of this product is it won't fade, no splinters, and will last up to 12 years!!
All that work and it looks so clean, but I have to admit it didn't even make a dent in the amount of space we need to continue to fix up.This weekend's task: pull weeds, plant pansies, pull weeds, buy 20 more bags of ground cover, and did I mention pull weeds?

In a different life a long time ago, we lived on Foster Road across from the park. It was 1959 - 1962...Three little girls...your family is so sweet, and so are you...you are so right... this is for you...
