Waiting for Spring

As Yum Yum waits patiently for Spring to arrive, I think that I need to start coming up with a project for the summer. I have been toying with the idea of re-landscaping the strip of lawn that is on the side of our house. I'm thinking of removing the grass and possibly installing a concrete mowing edge along the property line. I would then use a combination of gravel or decorative rocks as ground cover with some plants added into the mix. I was thinking of maybe using Pampas grass.

Anyway, I think I'll try post a few photos of the area and see if any of you might have any suggestions.


  1. We think Yum Yum is waiting for someone to turn on the Birdie Network. Just sayin!

    Your summer project sounds pretty ambitious! We need to re-do some landscaping too but it will most likely be done by someone we hire.

  2. We're already well into Spring. Want to practice here while you wait for Summer??? We really need some landscaping help!

  3. BeadedTail: That's pretty much what she was doing:) The project is something that I would like to do, but I still do not know exactly how it's going to turn out.

    FURKIDSMOM: Spring is trying to come here, but it keeps going away. On the first day of Spring, it snowed here. I would love to get some practice. I have limited experience in working with concrete, so I'm going to experiment with it by doing a portion of our backyard first. That way, I hopefully won't look like a total clown when I take the show out to the front yard :)
