It's all starting to come together

The first step before the landscaping is finalizing and installing the fence. And due to some unexpected rain, we were set back and so we don't have much to show just yet. The fence looks AMAZING and now finally the landscaper can come and start work!

Landscaping :)

With spring around the corner, Jarrett and I have committed ourselves to making the house look better on the outside. (And when I say "we", I really mean we are committed to it getting done, just not by us). It wasn't horrible...but just not what I wanted. It's become an obsession for me. Here I am with no understanding of plants, what works in the northeast, how much it costs. NOTHING. And yet, I have a vision I want executed. Enter google hell. I don't even know what I should be googling for ideas. "Bushes? Plants? Pretty House?" Boy does our landscaping have his work cut out. So here we a couple of weeks, we'll have a new fence, and a new yard!

Here are some pics of before and current. Since it's just April, we need to wait to plant...but I wanted to get everything that was there GONE. (And remember, before picture was taken in the summer....not March where it's quite the ugly canvas)

So here is our blank canvas:
