PostSubject: Anyone in here a yard guy?   Thu Mar 29, 2012 12:29 pm

Its the last day before spring break and my students are taking mid-term exams. I was bored and started listing things I will be doing in the yard over the next week. It hits me that I spend a lot of my time in my yard. Anyone else here a yard guy? Green grass, tree, shrubs, flowers, hardscapes, etc.

I am looking into early retirement and starting a small landscaping company to piddle around with. I have 10 more years until I can retire with a pension though. I love my current job too though. So for now I am a weekend warrior going for yard of the month!

Worked on my front yard (my small front yard Sad ) the past few days.

Added rock retaining walls/borders around the trees. Notice my FJ in the back.




Old Jack Daniels Whiskey barrels now used for planters.

Nicole and I love working in the yard... We are pretty competitive with our neighbors for "yard of the month". I even had a sign made just a few months after moving in and put it in my own yard and told my neighbors that the developer gave it to me... I let it go for about a month (with the sign in the yard) before coming clean.


This was right after finishing the deck in our backyard summer of 2010





The table and chairs on our deck are recycled plastic and I highly recommend looking into this type of funiture for you outdoor needs. It's a bit more expensive but it still looks brand new 2 years in the elements and it's heavy as crap... no need to worry about bring it in for storms.

Looks good Paul! The flower beds/natural areas look were a nice touch. My wife is not into yard work, but she has been a trooper. She has helped me dig some holes for some of the treee I've planted.

Some updated photos from this weekend. I try to take photos every year from the same places at about the same time of the year.

Lol, good I am not the only one! My wife makes fun of me when I do it. I prefer Fall. I tend to buy plants that look good in Fall.

No zoysia. I almost did my last yard that way. Mine is tall fescue. A little harder to maintain, but I can keep it green all year round.

These are before (3yrs ago) and then some more recent. This fall should be really nice. My trees have really taken off.

Nah, pictures make it look bigger. Very Happy Would also have to squeeze them through a 4ft fence gate.

We do host several gettogethers throughout the year. Everyone is invited. NO PARKING ON THE LAWN!

Driving in my back yard might be too much "off roading" to get 30-40 from our group.

Sorry I have to revoke the offer. My neighborhood doesn't allow soliciting or people who loosely use the word "brother".
