Progress By the Yard

The Hayley House feels always feels like it needs a lot work.

I suppose that's true of any home.

But during October we made some serious progress on the exterior. Behold:

I can't believe I'm sharing this disaster.

We raised the canopy, cut out dead wood, removed limbs threatening our roof and cleared away sucker branches.

The best $250 ever spent - we had a landscape crew trim all shrubs, bushes and small trees, as well as clean out
the planting beds, in the front and back of the house. What a difference!!

Now to deal with the bare spots in the yard - the raised tree canopy should allow more sunlight to reach the ground, necessary for growing grass.

Of course, I still need to paint the front door and paint our exterior light fixture, and we need to install gutters and have our threatening-to-fall-over mailbox replaced. I can't wait to see what everything looks like a year from now!
