Total yard makeover...right now we could film a "Thriller" video remake without altering the landscape!!!

Noticed several of the same type of shrubbery being attacked by some type of fast-replicating fungus. Lost three last year, and now the remaining shrubs are too far gone to save...

Actually, we did a backyard haunted house last Halloween, and recreated a realistic neglected graveyard scene by only using faux headstones...the yard took care of the rest!!!

No, but I do gotsa Hummingbird & Butterfly wildflower mix!

I've got so many spring projects that I don't even know where to start. We've done pathetically little since we moved in 10+ years ago. Every time the youngest kid would entertain themselves so we could both work on a project, the Mrs. would pop out another. The list is daunting.

The first will probably be to rent a big @$$ dumpster and empty my garage, shed and outbuilding of their contents. And get this...use the garage...as a garage!

After that I really need to put up a tub/shower surround since the tiles are starting to pop off the wall.

If I put them off too long it'll be time to get the boat ready for the water then nothing will get done.

I'm about to move into my first ever house. That is one that I own - along with the girlfriend. Frankly the amount of projects is overwhelming. I think fixing the cracks is the first priority. Then painting the interior. Then trying to bring the lawn back to a nice green luster.
