If you have followed my blog, you know that we do projects around our home all the time. We typically a yearly list to do.
With more time on our hands and being a homeowner, means there is always a project / improvement that needs to be done, some by us and others by professionals.
Our first project this year was to replace the grass between the road and sidewalk with plants. Delivery trucks parking on the sidewalk and the salt from the winter storms always made this grassy area a mess. Our hosta plants needed to be split, so this solved the problem. We removed the grass and placed weed block down, added the plants and completed it with mulch. No cost to us, just labor over two weekends.
Next, we starting to replace fence panels. We are still doing this ourselves, by replacing a panels or two when we have a few hours and the weather cooperates. We’ll do what we can and at a slow pace. It sounds easier than it is, because it’s not only replacing the panel, we need to breakdown and transport the old panel to the town’s transfer waste station.
As you know, home improvement projects and maintenance are easier to do now versus having a major emergency home improvement project later.
