Day number 1 of mulching = huge success!
My family came over around 1:30ish and we went outside to get to work first thing bc the clouds were threatening to rain on our parade. My dad and I were making the trip out to buy the mulch so Mum and Steve stayed behind and started clearing out the beds.
The mulch was less expensive than I had prepared myself for, but it also didn't cover as much as I thought it would sooo.... looks like I'll be going back for more asap. We got two big tractor scoops and it didn't even cover the whole front yard. But already, it's transformed my yard. I can't wait until it's completely finished!
So here's some before and after pictures.. please don't judge me too harshly on the befores! I didn't realize how horrid it looked until I saw what it could look like!
Before:

After:


That's what we have left to finish in the front. Still have the side and the back!


I like these next two because it's the same area just from a different angle and it really shows what a difference it makes:



So there you have it! My very thrilling first post concerning my own little home makeover. More to come in probably about two weeks. Next on the list that you can find yourself waiting for with baited breath.... Painting our guest bedroom! Trey's been extra anxious for me to do this.. it's lavender at the moment!
