This is the before (yes, there is a house behind all that!)
and the AFTER
(we had lots of neighbors comment...I think it might have been their nice way of saying "it's about time")
While the yard work was difficult and is certainly not my idea of a fun weekend, I am really pleased with the end result. After the trees were removed we planted some beautiful plants in the front bed and by the mailbox! We also planted a lorapetalum in the large bed...right now it is little but soon it will be huge - these are my favorite!
