Home and Landscape Improvments

Wow MAY was a busy month. Got a lot done this month to the yard despite the rain.

We started with putting up a new fence around the backyard. We had been wanting a new fence for some time and decided to go ahead this summer and knock it out.
It would keep the dogs from bothering anyone, keep them safe at home, and offer some privacy for us too.

After the fence was complete I had to trim the older fence in the backyard and apply some 2×4 wire. As you will see from the pics there was a huge brush pile and it burned really well.

Then I got started on building the dogs (DL and Louie) a new dog house.  Its pimpin!
They each have their own room and they both took to it before the shingles were on! Each one claiming a side.
I had been wanting to do this for a very long time, and finally got around to doing it.

Right after that I got 6 yards of gravel and made new parking spot. Then I got a trailer load of gravel and made some walkways in the backyard.

After that Melanie painted the shutters and doors a nice red color and she also painted the columns. Next we did some landscaping around the front putting down the weedout paper and mulch. Later I added stepping stones out to the driveway where eventually I will create a small bridge over the ditch.

I added some motion lighting this past weekend. I still have a lot that I want to do.
