This weekend Bryan and I jumped at the opportunity to do some much-needed yard work with the cool weather. Maybe “jumped” is a slight exaggeration. It was a beautiful 72 degrees on Saturday morning and I knew exactly which DIY project I wanted to check off of the list.
Someone people call it a berm, some call it a boulevard… I am going to call it the parkway. No matter what you call it, it’s the space between the sidewalk and the street. We bought our home a year ago, and the parkway has been full of weeds ever since. It bothered me so much. Every time I drove home it was the first thing I saw.
After three trips to Home Depot, a rain storm, and a broken action hoe, I am pleased to say the project is completed! We chose to put some random plants (all perennials and mostly ground cover) in between brown mulch. Hopefully these bring us many seasons of beauty.
I realize I should have taken a before shot. Oops! Here are some snapshots from the day though.
