When we bought our house, this is what it looked like. A horrible yard, and too many, overgrown, ugly plants. The first thing Ben did was rip out those tall trees by the front door.He also trimmed up the trees and plants that we intended to keep.
It looked like this for the next few weeks.
The grass we did have was crab grass and water grass, and it was patchy and awful looking.
We hated feeling like we had the worst looking yard on the street.
So a few weeks ago we had all the ugly old grass removed, and replaced with new sod. We both love the clean and trim look now.
