Backyard Facelift

Although our backyard was just made over a year ago, we started to see some problems with our grassy areas. The trees in the grass were creating too much shade so the grass was dying… creating big muddy messes when the dog and Parker would play. Knowing that Easter was just around the corner and we were hosting again, my dad surprised us with a backyard facelift.

I came home from work and both trees and all remaining grass was removed! By the very next day my dad had new sod installed and put in a flower bed surrounding the seat wall (where it is still very shady). I am constantly stunned with my dads creativity and generosity. There is no way we would have been able to fix the yard to this extent. Sure do appreciate him!

New flower beds filled with mossy ground cover that enjoys the shade. My dad's vision is to have all of the moss fill in and spill over the bender board into the grass.

We all love laying in the new grass!
