Landscaping 2011
Last summer's project was residing the house. This summer's project was landscaping the front of the house. Although planned way back in April, Chaney's Nursery was only able to get around today to do the job. The rainy spring really put them far behind on their landscaping jobs. But today they came, they saw, they landscaped the joint!

A before shot of the house, half an hour before the landscapers arrive.

Full frontal view (heh heh) of my house before the landscapers arrive.

They arrive!

And they're off! They arrived around 8:30am and worked for a couple hours.

Tilling my dry soil in anticipation of planting!

I returned from a short walk around town to find them all still hard at work.

Before they can place the plants, the soil has to be just right...

Holes!
Holes!
Holes are dug & the plants are stuffed into the holes.

The other side awaits planting too.

My new maple tree. Will really get to "shine" when the old Bradford pear is removed.

Smells nasty, but always looks nice. Let's hear it for (hopefully termite-free) mulch!

Nice! And it will look even better as all those new plants mature.
