Phase 5 of our Yard

Since we moved into our house 5 years ago, I've had our yard plans drawn up.  Each year we have done a section.  We got another one done this weekend and I am so happy with it.  It has haunted my dreams for the last 5 years and now it is a reality.
We rented this beast from Home Depot.
(I'm glad Jarrett ran this thing and not me)

The kids helped too.

We've got a couple aspen trees, an american redbud tree, a forsythia bush, 2 spirea and 2 other bushes that the names have escaped me.  We moved our mailbox over 3 feet so we don't have to worry about hitting it every time we pull out of the driveway.  Anyways I am happy.  Two more phases and the front yard will be done.  We've got one more planting area and we want to widen our driveway so that we can park side by side.
Come on spring!

  1. It looks great! Good job working on it a little at a time! (By the way, I thought your yard looked gorgeous last year). What is the name of the yellow bush. I want to get some for my yard!
