combined with 6, 7, 8, 9, beers or more, sore knees, an aching back...but so well worth the effort!
Originally, my front yard looked like this:
I had the Yews removed from in front of the house, along with the old gas lamp that hadn't worked in probably 30-40 years, which will help out both for the health of my lawn, and my gas bill, because unbeknown to me, the gas line leading from the house to the old gas lamp had leaks in it, which was killing portions of my lawn, which is why you can see a dirt path from the lamp towards the front of the house in the last picture.
Anyhow, I am pleased with the work thus far, and am amply pleased that I was able to dig the hole for the flag pole (12x22) without hiring someone to do it for me. I did have to pace myself and not over do it like I did a weekend ago or so.
