From the driveway, this path leads you to our back patio/hot tub
A view standing in the garden, looking at our patio. The landscape provides a lot of privacy
Here is a lilac bush, tangled up with some big weeds, tree growth, and overgrown prickly bushes. (this mess is on our to-do list for this weekend)
Another angle of the mess. You couldn't even see the bushes prior to us trimming that tree up
That's the tree we trimmed up. We plan on pulling bushes out and planting smaller ones or just some flowers underneath
The view from our back property line
We love how much shade the pergola provides. You can also see how the hot tub blends in and is private in the corner surrounded by landscaping
We whacked those rose bushes down last weekend. They were growing into the tree
The view of our backyard, our property ends before the bigger tree in the distance
Huge lilac tree and overgrown rose bushes underneath
And now the front...
The Bradford Pear tree has sprouts everywhere! I am trying to convince Greg to cut the tree down...
This is an overgrown mess to the right of the front door. The Japanese Maple is looking crazy and hides everything behind it. The holly in the way back is almost as tall as the dining room windows!
These were found blooming behind the Japanese Maple
There is a large tree/bush type thing in the center of this picture. It is also slowly taking over the house
This is the view down the driveway. Large bushes try and hide the utility boxes
These beauties were found blooming by the mailbox
And back up the driveway there is one more garden bed..
..and a cute little light post growing more flowers
