What a Difference A Year Makes

When we bought our row house, the backyard looked like this:
One year later, in May 2010, it looked like this:
Two years later, in May 2011, it looks like this:
I'm very happy with the shapes of the beds, as compares to last year. And I like how things are filling in - in the back. AND MAYBE THE SUN WILL FREAKING COME OUT so I can add mulch BEFORE JULY.

  2. Looking Good!!!....I wouldn't count on the sun too much until...Ohhhh...next year. Maybe the backyard will have a canopy to keep out the rain by then! LOL

  4. Question: Did you install a new fence or just roll some kind of privacy fence-like screen up in front of your existing fence?

  7. It's like watching a child grow up! It looks great and it's amazing how much the plants grow and fill in. I'm with you on hoping for some sun. We actually had some today and it was nice to be able to mow. But guess what...rain now for the next week...sob..sob...sob...

  12. i am very happy with this too! can you tell me more about the privacy screening you have over the fence: is that the bamboo stuff that comes in a roll? where did you get it, and how did you install? did you treat it? sorry for the questions. we have some mega-ugly fencing that we want to cover with something, but are too cheap to install a real 6' privacy fence :)
