Back to the grind tomorrow. Three weeks off of work saw my family out from San Diego, California for the holiday season and the accompanying tourist activities that come with having visitors. Mixed in alongside all the standard tourist destinations was a bit of yard work. Okay, a lot of yard work.
Our grass was “installed” relatively quickly once we moved it – it prevented Jake (our dog) from tracking in the clay that plays a prominent role in our backyard, but the rest of our yard was still lacking.
After an additional 15 tons of garden soil being delivered, and an expensive trip to the nursery, we finally started planting our garden beds. Like any garden that requires layering, it will have to grow in over time and establish itself, but we had to start somewhere.
From Golden Cane Palms to Xanadu, our landscaping is finally starting to take shape. Our builder gave us the left over bricks from the build, and we roughly laid them out for garden edging. I’ve yet to bury them and cement them in, but I HAVE realised how big of a job this will be. I’m not really looking forward to it, but until then, I’ll admire what will soon be a very enjoyable, and relaxing backyard oasis.
