Jon and I have been so busy lately! We bought a home around Thanksgiving. It’s our “Jet & Jon” home. We’ve had the interior main floor painted and the floors stripped and stained darker. Now it is time for the landscaping. We had two burning bushes in the front on each side of the drive. They were too big and the made it hard to mow, so….they are gone! We also had the front beds lined with landscape pavers, and some tiered beds done. Natural pave stone walkway to the backyard. New plantings too. It looks beautiful.
The company that did the landscaping, Outdoor Escapes, did my patio and firepit on my previous home. They are wonderful to work with. Matt Smith, the owner, got me a bid. I said to Jon, “Hey honey, why don’t we save a little money and pull the landscape rock out ourselves and clean it?” OMG what was I thinking? That was the mother of all jobs! In the end, we did get it all out in time, but not cleaned. I don’t know that I would ever do that job again.
What job did I enjoy? POWER WASHING! I’d never used a power washer before, and it was so much fun to see the ugly, stained driveway clean up so well. I can’t wait to use it again! Best part of the project? Working side by side with my wonderful husband, making this house our home.
