Garden Steps - Before and After

By
Real Estate Agent with The DiGiorgio Group

The garden 'stairs' I installed a few years ago worked OK for a while, but they had started to look pretty bedraggled. At the same time, I decided to eliminate my pond, because I had a young grandson and another on the way, and didn't want to risk any accidents. So ... the digging began, I hired a neighbor kid to lug the two largest peices of flagstone to their new spot. And ...     My new stairs look much better, don't you agree?     Plus, I got a new garden spot out of the pond area.

The only tools required for this project were a shovel and a level. Oh, and a neighbor's young back and strong arms!

Now, to get started on setting up that new fountain .... ha ha! It never ends! (And I love it - that's the beauty of gardening!)

I write posts on real estate issues and local events in the Denver metro area, especially those *communities between Denver and Boulder, as a public service. My hope is to give people an idea of the 'flavor' of our community, in case they're new or moving to the Denver area.

I am a residential real estate agent, happily helping folks buy a house or sell a house in the beautiful and friendly *suburbs northwest of Denver.

*Arvada, Broomfield, Lafayette, Louisville, Superior, Westminster; also Thornton, Golden, Wheat Ridge, Northglen, Lakewood

See It. Experience It. Live It.

Joetta, it looks like you are making progress on your yard.  Mine isn't fair too well with two or three dogs using it as a race track and rolling around on all of the plants.  (My neighbor's dog visits regularly.)   I look forward to seeing more pictures as the nice spring/summer weather progresses.

Right now I have tomatoes, peppers, onions and golden raspberries.  Haven't been out there for a couple of weeks due to family issues, so probably a lot of weeds too!
