A lot has happened since my last post. I removed rocks that had been residing in the garden and we also had some family friends help us with laying out weed preventive plastic. The place is slowly looking better!
B also ripped out all the drywall in the garage. He then painted the garage to get rid of the musty odor in the garage.
Here is B ripping out drywall in the garage.
B bought this trailer so we could transport more scraps to the dump. We filled that baby up!
While B worked on tearing out the drywall I made sure to take all the rocks out of the garden. After I got rid of the rocks I was able to start laying out the plastic. We bought our weed preventive plastic from Home Depot, called Fabriscape. 3×100 ft worked well for us. To keep the plastic is place we used sod pins, which are easy to use.
Here are some of the rocks I had to get rid of before laying the plastic out.
B had removed the holly bush that was next to the light so I could lay out the plastic. It was very doable. I know absolutely nothing about gardening or laying out weed preventive plastic. So, if I can do it you can, too! All together it took us 2 days just to remove the rock and lay out the plastic. We’d like to do the other side of the stairs, which I think I will start this weekend if the weather is nice!
It’s starting to look great! I can’t wait to share with you my next post!! Let’s just say it’s the price you pay if you want a nice yard! 🙂
