3 out of 4 is not bad

The sun came out in force and Christopher and I worked like dogs in the front and back yard. Christopher built 3 out of 4 garden beds and hopefully by Monday night the 4th will be completed. We used untreated douglas fir and corrugated steel and I really like how they turned out.

 Will and Elizabeth helped build beds #2 and 3
My job was to stain the wood then I was off to the front yard reworking the strip of grass I pulled out last year. Weeds and clumps of grass were invading my handy work, but just a couple hours of retilling and pouring red mulch turned my barren patch of dirt into a manicured front yard. or at least i like to think that! i also planted some lavender for my viewing pleasure.  Christopher, Will and Elizabeth moved the railway ties from the back to create a little fence in the front yard. photos to come :)
