Front of house, 660 Dean Drive - January 16, 2004
Back of house
There was no landscaping in the front or back of the house. A perfect blank slate.
Blank slate in side and back yards (2004)
Front Entry Garden (2009 thru 2011)
I've routed all the gutter down spouts under ground so they're out of the way (2007).
Side near back patio (2004 thru 2017)
South Side Terrace (2007 thru 2010)
South Side of House
2009 (mostly missing Tiger)
2010: lots of fruit on peach trees (originally planted as flowering almonds; bunnies ate them to the ground; then original roots - peach - sent up new shoots)
Pathway to Mark's House (2004 to 2009)
South Side Pathway (2009)
New terrace at the Back of the House (2009)
New terrace in backyard for new Magnolia (2010)
New paint color for front veranda walls (2010)
Stepping stones towards backyard (2011)
Very overgrown pathway. Invasive plants and no time to pull and/or kill them. (2011)
Pathway cleared and new planting bed along side. Peach trees gone. (2011)
Lower 8 feet of Mark's blue spruces removed. Lots of space for new plantings. (2011)
Finally time for new gutters - January 2012
Both sides - Mark's and mine - got new gutters at the same time. The upper roof has downspouts to lower roof gutter, instead of running onto the roof.
And now time for new windows. - March 2013
Most of the windows were so fogged from condensation that they were virtually opaque.
Old and New back windows and patio door.
Finally, it's time to convert the stepping stones and river rocks to concrete sidewalk. And replace side stoop and back veranda.
Step 1 - Demo
Step 3 - Concrete
Lots of landscaping cleanup left to do after the forms are removed.
The landscaping is mostly finished. Grass is seeded along sidewalk. Some planting is left for next year.From the front driveway to the back and towards the front again.
