Poor Man's Sod

By 86'n It on Apr 09, 2012

With this beautiful weather we have been having, we have been exerting most of our renovation energy on the backyard. This involves mostly moving things. I move plants and Marc moves grass.

I call it the poor man's sod.
Very effective.

It's not all moving stuff around. We did build something new for the backyard.
We are going to have a kick-a** garden this year which will include lots of vine plants growing on this:

Marc's handy work. He's going to add some paint? or something to spice it up a little.


Well, I guess I can't claim that this is all new. We did reuse old garden edging wood for the two tall posts.

I have to say, landscaping may be my new love. It combines my three favorite renovation tasks: tearing things up, eye-balling it and getting dirty!


p.s. Are allergies kicking anyone else's butt this year? Ugh.
