Yard Overhaul Project

By
Real Estate Agent with Berkshire Hathaway Home Services Florida Network Realty BK 3030920

I'm always fascinated by a complete redo of a yard. I, myself, do not care for the St. Augustine grass we have here in the Southeast; it's a crawling, viney type of grass, and it just gets everywhere, especially if you don't keep it in its place!

A good friend is having her yard completely redone, and has allowed me the chance to help document the process by taking before and after pictures - here is where she is so far with the process:

BEFORE

Before Work Started, facing east

AFTER

East View After

East View After - notice, walkway has been completely demoed and removed.

 

BEFORE

Back Yard Before

The backyard is almost completely wild and looks very small & cramped.

 

AFTER

Back Yard After

You can just see the edge of the patio on the right hand side -she had no idea there was this much room in the back yard!

 

Back Patio

I don't think these chairs are getting much use, do you?

AFTER

Back Patio After

I know she is thrilled with how things are progressing, and I'll continue to post - happy Thursday!
