(After a month of hiatus- here’s the last post I started drafting on October 1st!)
Sam has been at it again over the past few weeks, getting in some of the final landscaping for the front of the house before the weather turns. (Which is very unpredictable here in Northern Utah)
The first snowfall has ranged as early as mid October, all the way to Christmas Eve. And to be honest- it looks like it’s going to be an early snowfall this year. (Which it did snow in late October, but did not stick)
Sam had worked on gathering ALL of his wood into one pile- and turns out that he owns 12,000 board feet of Cherry, Walnut, Oak and Mahogany. Anyways, he found some timbers in his pile that would get him started on some curb appeal in the front of our house.
A few extra sticks from Home Depot, and some outdoor stain- and we have the skeleton for the frame of our shrubs in front of the shed.
Joyce helped out with the painting too!
Next, Sam laid out the timbers for placement:
And made some cuts:
All weeds were whacked down using our electric Ryobi weed trimmer.
Black weed barrier was laid out all around the shrubs within the new box.
And to secure the timbers in place, a hole was drilled to insert some rebar through the wood, into the ground.
After a few truck loads of bark and gravel,
We have our landscaping compete by the woodshed!

Bravo Sam! That looks great! I absolutely love the mountains all around your home, I bet they look extra beautiful when covered with snow!
