Landscaping Time!!!

Landscaping time!!! We have been waiting for this day in over a year and a half. Our House if Finally Finished with all the USDA Stuff....YEA!. When we finished our house last year it was to cold to finish the landscaping so we all opted to finish this spring when we could plant grass and flower beds and not have them die in the winter. So the time finally came and Justin and I spent a ton of time trying to figure out what we wanted, We decided that we needed a flower bed out front because the sprinklers would not water right next to the foundation. So I opted for a rock bed with some bushes that will look cute....and that is low maintenance. I am not a big flower fan as most of you know. So this was perfect for me. So when it got closer Justin and I found some brick and decide where we wanted the flower bed to go. Then Allreds came and leveled out our yard for us so that we could get ready to plant grass...Here are some pictures....
 Considering we were planing grass in three days we decided that we needed to finish the rock bed in front. I found these cute shrubs at Lowes and we decided they would be really good for the front of the house. So we sent one night laying down weed barrier and then planting shrubs. The next day our rock was delivered at our house. So we finished the flower bed and started smoothing out rock on one side of the driveway. 
 This Saturday May 3, 2014 our Sod Arrives. YEA....Earlier in the week we had asked ward members to come and help and I could not believe how many had shown up. We had at least 20 ward members show up and help us lay sod for 6 houses. We started at 8 am and was done by 11am. We could not have done it without them. Also, my parents, brothers, and ShaNae came to help. Thank you so much for all your love and support. 
 Here is the finished project...yea! 
Our fence will be finished come Tuesday then we will have to move to the back yard and finish that...A ton of projects...but I will keep you posted on all of our fun activities this summer...YEA!
