|This, sadly, is DAYS worth of progress...|
But in a month, it will look quite different!
SUPERGAG. I have never been so disgusted.
The first step to prepping our yard for excellence was to remove all of the leaves, grass and weeds that had been consuming the lawn for two years. To start, we tried raking. After three hours and six contractor bags filled with debris... our lawn still looked like complete crap. It was as if the rake had never touched it!
|Under the pathetic protection of our carport, 45 of the|
60 lawn bags wait for pick up while being shielded from rain.
After all of this, we were left with 60 - yes, SIXTY - yard bags filled with clippings and debris.
Um, how does one dispose of 60 yard bags anyhow?
After an odd conversation with the City of St. Louis Park ("are you sure you're able to pick up all of those bags on trash day? yes, they're in biodegradeable yard bags... but you heard me, right? we have sixty bags for pick up...), the bags are gone and our fresh and clean lawn awaits its first treatment from TruGreen.
|The Dads work to save the tree - it's expensive|
and beautiful, but just not right for our house.
It's even MORE of an eyesore - now you can see just how bad the aluminum is!
But soon it will be beautiful... it will feature rock, shrubs, fresh paint, new stain and clean grates... and best of all it will no longer be an eyesore for the neighborhood. Plus, the curb appeal should greatly boost our equity!
Stay tuned for the reveal over the next month!
