Overgrown

This is the ONLY word that can describe the mess of a yard that we acquired when we moved.  It appears that anytime a leaf, branch, stick, etc, fell on the ground,  it was put into a massive pile……for the last 30 years.  My pictures don’t do the “pile” of brush justice, but at least you can kind of tell what we were up against.

Josh thought it would be a good idea (and rightly so) to cut back and clean this mess out before it started to leaf and bud this spring.  So a few weekends ago, we rented a chipper and went to town.

Not quite ready for after pics yet.  We cut the bushes back, but still need to dig out the stumps.  That sounds like a fun job.  But our side yard looks 10 times better!
