Backyard Makeover

In case you haven't learned this about me, I am not a fan of mowing a lot of grass. Some yes, but if its a problem area I say its time for it to leave. This is the entrance into my backyard. Its narrow and is basically a pass through to the bigger part of our backyard. With some sweat and a strong back I now have an entrance into my backyard that I am pleased to walk through. No more dragging the weed eater and push mower through here.

Its been fun creating a garden pathway. I've been dividing perennials and filling in around the path. I can't wait to see it as it matures. I love cottage gardening.


  1. Yay, Melissa! It's more spacious-looking and must provide a great entryway effect into the main backyard itself (where you let someone else do the mowing, I hope?). Less to water, too.

  2. Thanks, Katy. I like my new space much better and I think it looks more spacious also. I still have to mow the main backyard right now. Oh well, I guess that means I need to start whittling more of down each year like here. :D I'll take flowers any day over grass.
