Much Better!

This past weekend we decided it was time to clean in front of our second garage door. When we moved into our house we only had a one car garage. We built a two car garage in the same spot the one car was. So we have no drive way in front of the second door.

This seems to be where we put all of our yard waste, rocks we aren't using anymore, extra mulch and dirt. What a mess we made.

We got all of the rocks dug out and put in the truck. Then Chris tried to shovel all the other stuff up by hand. We waited too long and it was very hard.

So he gave his father a call and borrowed....

His rototiller. So much easier than digging by hand.

It just took a little raking and shoveling. We put a lot of the soil into a raised bed we weren't going to use, but changed our mind.

The area in front of the door looks so much nicer now and so does the back yard.

We will have to dig it out again when we have the time to get the diseased tree in the backyard cut down. Then we will be able to add gravel so one of us can park there.
