There’s nothing like a “new” house and yard. Everything is bright and shiny, full of promise. A “new” yard has lots of “promise” rather than “problems”. It is way more fun to plant a yard with your design in mind than to cut, pull and rearrange the current reality. It has been 5 years since we finished the house and moved it. Just this past week we re-did the floors…. so much harder than the first time. Lesson learned…. do the best job you possibly can the first time!
