This morning the family stepped out on the porch to enjoy some of the new plantings. In his haste, this is how Coop donned his flip-flops. He didn't seem to mind a bit. But just you try it sometime.
The yard is still not done... making us rethink our plans for a quick trip to SLC. But it's getting close. Here are a few pictures. There's a few places where the sod needs patching but you can get the general idea. All of our plantings need to mature a bit. They will look much better by the end of the summer... let alone next year.
For those who have never been to our home, we raised the bed and had the retaining wall built. We also extended the planting area in some places, but reclaimed the turf in others. We added a tree on the south of the walkway to the door. We're hoping that as the tree matures it will reduce the visual impact of the monster, sloping driveway.
