Creating "curb appeal"

It strikes me as funny that I've lived in this house for eight years and we FINALLY got around to doing a landscaping makeover as we are getting ready to sell. Nothing like working hard for someone else to enjoy...

Very dear friends of ours, Kate and Andy along with Kate's parents, Jim and Stephanie volunteered to kick start the project. They took care of getting the mulch, bringing landscaping stone, and much of the grunt work. Ian and I, along with Adam and Traci, my mom, Adam's dad, and of course Kylie pitched in. It ended up taking about four hours of hard work in the hot sun, but we're so pleased with how it turned out!

Kylie getting in on stomping the mulch into place ~ she loved the way it felt on her feet!

Behold, before and after...
































It's gonna be really pretty when the yellow mums are in full bloom! So now I think I want to stay...

It does look wonderful. I don't know if I should be happy or sad. I don't want to HELP you move! ;)
