My yard looked like crap when I moved in. The grass was like two feet high, there was a tree stump in there somewhere and the gravel next to the driveway was just the crap the city puts down on the roads in the winter. There was a ridiculous slant to the yard right off the side walk that was a pain to mow.

My solution was to add river rocks and a small elevated garden. The big rocks are to keep people from cutting the corner and driving through my yard.

Here is my garden decorated for fall since it won't be planted until next spring. I also added the tiny picket fence under the stoop, to keep the cats out.

Its a pumpkin patch. Get it?


Wait. This isn't a forum for macaroni and cheese addicts? Crap.

lol your solutions are so simple, but totally awesome. i wouldn't have thought of them, but that's cuz im a lamebrain.
great job fixing the bare spots on the grass (and in general)! also, looks like they repaved the road Smiley

Nice job! The rocks were a good idea too. Some people insist on being rude and obnoxious...  Undecided The pumpkin patch is so adorable.  Cheesy

Inspiration without application is moot.

Really inspiring! I hope you'll post again when you plant in the spring.

It is better to have crafted and failed then never to have crafted at all.
Yes, I am stalking the Toys and Playthings board. Thanks for noticing!
I'm cheating on Craftster with Pinterest. It's ok though. There's overlap.
